"L'heure s'envole"

Time flies by

Time flies by
Joyful and crazy,
Seize it as it passes.
Let us gather the roses
Which bloom for us
With joy and pleasure.
Fanciful choir of love,
Under a velvet mask
Your realm entices us
With a smile and a glance!

And the wilful heart surrenders
to the whim of chance!
A night of intoxication and madness!
We are compelled,
We are pursued!
The coldest heart succumbs
And is caught in our nets!
The charms of the beguiling beauty
are revealed!

Charles Gonoud's setting of Shakespeare's classic - Roméo et Juliette.
