Beau Soir (Beautiful Evening)
A poem by Paul Bourget
Set to music by Claude Debussy
When at sunset the rivers are pink
And a warm breeze ripples the fields of wheat,
All things seem to advise content
And rise toward the troubled heart;
Advise us to savour the gift of life
While we are young and the evening fair,
For our life slopes by as that river does:
It to the sea-we the tomb
