OK, sorry for this lousy title, to compensate as much as possible let's have this :

"Voici venir les temps où vibrant sur sa tige
Chaque fleur s'évapore ainsi qu'un encensoir...
Les sons et les parfums tournent dans l'air du soir,
Valse mélancolique et langoureux bonsoir!"

This is from a Baudelaire poem called 'Harmonie du soir' and yes, this should be an evening of harmony!

Let's meet in the charming lively area of Chartrons, for this other evening (see event of March 7th) offered by the poetry festival 'Marché de la Poésie'.

Let's get enchanted by the musicality and the power of Charles Baudelaire alexandrins, quatrains, long poems!
Let's sway on the rythm and aliterations of this great stylist, let's be dazzled by the luminous or dark images of his mysterious world.

Various actors, professional and amateurs, and a quintet from the Orchestre National de Bordeaux will render a vibrant tribute to one of the greatest French poets.

As the organizers put it:
"Charles Baudelaire, enivrez-vous !"
