The Sky Is Up Above The Roof – June 23rd

The Sky Is Up Above The Roof from France
by Paul Verlaine

The sky is up above the roof
So blue, so soft.
A tree there, up above the roof,
Swayeth aloft.

A bell within that sky we see,
Chimes low and faint;
A bird upon that tree we see,
Maketh complaint.

Dear God, is not life up there
Simple and sweet?
How peacefully are borne up there
Sounds of the street.
