♥♥ Léo Ferré Centenary ♥♥



Avec le temps, va, tout s’en va 
Et l’on se sent blanchi comme un cheval fourbu 
Et l’on se sent glacé dans un lit de hasard. 


With time . . . it all goes . . . goes away . . . 
And you feel white-haired like a broken old horse 
And you feel frozen in some chance resting-place. 

- Léo Ferré - 
from Avec le Temps (With Time), 1971 

August 24, 1916 - July 14, 1993 























Léo & his Pépée 

pour toi, Léo, 
j'ai traversé tout Paris à pied, seulement pour t'écouter .... 
au Palais des Congrés, Nov. 1975. je n'oublierai jamais !!!!! 

T'aime pour Toujours ♥ 

for you, Léo, 
i have walked through all Paris, only to listen you ..... 
at Palais des Congrés, Nov. 1975. i will never forget !!!!! 

Love you for Always ♥
