    Post AUBADE :::: About Lovers Separating At Dawn.

    An aubade is a poem or song of or about lovers separating at dawn.

    Aubade has also been defined as "a song or instrumental composition concerning, accompanying, or evoking daybreak."

    The form has some dramatic elements, since the poem is often a dialogue between the lovers, one saying that dawn is near and they must part, and the other answering no.
    There is often a refrain, in which the watchman, or occasionally the jealous husband, warns the lovers of the approaching dawn.



    Lucky is the man who is the first love of a woman,
    but luckier is the woman who is the last love of a man.

    Aubades were in the repertory of troubadours in Europe in the Middle Ages. An early English example is in Book III of Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde. The love poetry of the 16th century dealt mostly with unsatisfied love, so the aubade was not a major genre in Elizabethan lyric. However, there is an aubade embedded in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, starting with the famous lines:

    Wilt thou be gone? it is not yet near day:
    It was the nightingale, and not the lark,
    That pierc'd the fearful hollow of thine ear

    The aubade gained in popularity again with the advent of the metaphysical fashion; John Donne's poem "The Sunne Rising" is one of the finest examples of the aubade in English. Aubades were written from time to time in the 18th and 19th century, although none of them quite up to metaphysical standards.

    There have been several notable aubades in the 20th century, such as Eagle Eye Cherry's popular song "Save Tonight", as well as a major poem titled "Aubade" by Philip Larkin in which the lover can be seen as either life or death. The French composer Francois Poulenc also wrote (in concerto form) a piece entitled Aubade which premiered in 1929. Maurice Ravel also included an aubade (Alborado del Gracioso) in his 1906 piano suite Miroirs. Mike Patton has a song entitled Aubade with the band Kaada.

    Stay, O sweet, and do not rise,
    The light that shines comes from thine eyes;
    the day breaks not, it is my heart,
    Because that you and I must part.
    Stay, or else my joys will die,
    And perish in their infancy.

    There are certain things which money can’t buy
    Wags of a dog’s tail worth more than a dime
    Happiness and joy and freedom from lies
    But above all things, most important: time
    Sadly enough I see the star to rise -
    Your eyes reflect the foreseen golden sun
    It means we must part – must say our goodbyes
    How many minutes? Five fast become one
    “Love, will you hold me till the morning comes?
    The light is cold, and your arms are so warm”
    “Dear, can’t you see? – It’s the East that it’s from;
    If you don’t leave now, it will bring us harm.”
    Love now must fly – get back to thy window
    Rosy-fingered dawn has come – I must go

    An aubade should be a dawn celebration
    of the soft light blush spread across a lover’s cheek,
    the deeper rose of her lipstick highlighting his mouth
    and the peach glow of a shoulder made bare,
    all remembered in the moment when
    blue angel eyes slowly push the dawn aside
    as the early murmur of traffic mingles with
    a crescendo of silent yawns and soft morning smiles.

    Why must dawn come so soon?
    For after this night,
    I will never see you again.

    We stared into each others eyes for what seemed like hours,
    But now you must say goodbye.
    Why must dawn come so soon?

    The day your letter came
    You said that you’d stay alive for me, but I believe that
    I will never see you again.

    You hold me tight.
    Are you as afraid as I am?
    The sun peaks through the hills
    And a single ray shines on my face.

    You let me go.

    Why did dawn come so soon?

    The sun shines,
    Your shadow grows as you walk away from me.
    You don’t turn back

    Why did dawn come so soon?
    For our night is gone.
    I will never see you again.
