Tristesse de la Lune/ Sadness of the Moon by Charles Baudelaire – Full Moon January 2015 Poem

On full moon days, I love reading poems.

Today, I’ve selected for you the beautiful and sad poem called Tristesses de la Lune/ Sadness of the Moon by Charles Beaudelaire. And added poetic pictures of a woman playing the moon.

I hope you will enjoy the calm and solitude of these rhymes!

Ce soir, la lune rêve avec plus de paresse;
Ainsi qu’une beauté, sur de nombreux coussins,
Qui d’une main distraite et légère caresse
Avant de s’endormir le contour de ses seins,[/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″]Sadness of the Moon
Tonight the moon dreams with more indolence,
Like a lovely woman on a bed of cushions
Who fondles with a light and listless hand
The contour of her breasts before falling asleep;[/vc_column][/vc_row]

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″]Sur le dos satiné des molles avalanches,
Mourante, elle se livre aux longues pâmoisons,
Et promène ses yeux sur les visions blanches
Qui montent dans l’azur comme des floraisons.[/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″]On the satiny back of the billowing clouds,
Languishing, she lets herself fall into long swoons
And casts her eyes over the white phantoms
That rise in the azure like blossoming flowers.[/vc_column][/vc_row]

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″]Quand parfois sur ce globe, en sa langueur oisive,
Elle laisse filer une larme furtive,
Un poète pieux, ennemi du sommeil,[/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″]When, in her lazy listlessness,
She sometimes sheds a furtive tear upon this globe,
A pious poet, enemy of sleep,[/vc_column][/vc_row]

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″]Dans le creux de sa main prend cette larme pâle,
Aux reflets irisés comme un fragment d’opale,
Et la met dans son coeur loin des yeux du soleil.[/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″]In the hollow of his hand catches this pale tear,
With the iridescent reflections of opal,
And hides it in his heart afar from the sun’s eyes.[/vc_column][/vc_row]
