Hahn's famous mélodie, over a poem by Victor Hugo, in the unique voice of Susan Graham. Photographs of Belo Horizonte, Brazil

Si Mes Vers Avaient des Ailes

Mês vers fuiraient, doux et frêles
Vers votre jardin si beau,
Si mes vers avaient des ailes
Comme l'oiseau.

Ils voleraient, étincelles,
Vers votre foyer qui rit,
Si mes vers avaient des ailes,
Des ailes comme lesprit.

Près de vous, purs et fidèles,
Ils accourraient, nuit et jour,
Si mes vers avaient des ailes,
Des ailes comme lamour!

Victor Hugo

My poems would flee, sweet, frail,
To your beautiful garden,
If only my poems had the wings
Of a bird.

They would fly, like sparks,
To your smiling hearth,
If only my poems had the wings
Of the soul.

To be close to you, pure and true,
They would hasten night and day,
If only my poems had the wings,
Of love.
