Les Berceaux

The Cradles

Le long du quai, les grands vaisseaux,
Que la houle incline en silence,
Ne prennent pas garde aux berceaux,
Que la main des femmes balance.
Mais viendra le jour des adieux,
Car il faut que les femmes pleurent,
Et que les hommes curieux,
Tentent les horizons qui leurrent!
Et ce jour,la les grands vaisseaux,
Fuyant le port qui diminue,
Sentent leur masse retenue
Par l'c1me des lointains berceaux.
Along the quay, the great ships,
silently listing to the swell,
are unmindful of the cradles
rocked by the women's hands.
But the day of parting will come,
for it must be that women weep,
and men with inquiring minds,
attempt alluring horizons.
And on that day the great ships,
leaving the port growing smaller in the
feel their hulls held back
by the soul of the distant cradles.

    The "Listen" sample is NOT of this song, so don't judge by that. It's a lovely song that I sang in recital as a solo, but here nicely arranged for women's voices.
