Baudelaire poem set to music by Christopher Andrew Corbell

lyrics

Hymn

To the dearest, fairest woman
Who sets my heart ablaze with light,
To the angel, the immortal idol,
Greetings in immortality!

She permeates my life
Like air impregnated with salt
And into my unsated soul
Pours the taste for the eternal.

Sachet, ever fresh, that perfumes
The atmosphere of a dear nook,
Forgotten censer smoldering
Secretly through the night,

Everlasting love, how can I
Describe you truthfully?
Grain of musk that lies unseen
In the depths of my eternity!

To the dearest, fairest woman
Who is my health and my delight
To the angel, the immortal idol,
Greetings in immortality!
