It Pitter-Patters Down My Heart: translation of Paul Verlaine's Il pleure dans mon coeur

It Pitter-Patters Down My Heart

(Another possible translation of  Paul Verlaine’s « Il pleure dans mon cœur » by T. Wignesan)

It pitter-patters down my heart
Just as it does over the town.
What’s this languorous thought
Which creeps into my heart ?

Oh ! the gentle tred of the rain
On the ground and on roof-tops !
For a heart which is in chagrin
Oh ! the music that is rain !

It rains without rhyme or cause
In this heart which constricts.
What ! No treacherous force ?
Plunges me in mourning’s remorse.

Well, the worst possible sentence
Is to leave me with not even a clue,
Bereft of love and hate - whence
My heart founders under sentence.

    Thanks ever so much, again, in Verlaine's name. You can see why even the legendary poet Rimbaud sought his company; in my view, not for the mutual attraction - which, in any case, marred their relationship. Well, there are many of his gems in the soup. Sample them and enjoy! Every good wish. Bonne Nuit! Wignesan
