This poem written by Verlaine (1872) while in a prison has also been set in music by Gabriel Fauré ("Prison"), Reynaldo Hahn ("D’une prison"). Translation (AJ):

"The sky is, over the roof, So blue, so calm; A tree, over the roof, Rocks its palm.

The bell in the sky that one sees, Softly rings. A bird on the tree that one sees Sings its lament.

Good Lord, Good Lord, life is there Simple and tranquil. This peaceful hum Comes from the town.

What have you done, Oh you here, Crying constantly, Tell, what have you done, you here, Of your youth?"
