The title relates to a French folk song of the 18th century – une chanson populaire francaise du 18th siècle.  It’s  called “Au Clair de la Lune” and is a song that I learned at a very young age through my mother Claire who loved to sing it with me. The song goes like this….Au Clair de la lune …mon ami Pierrot, Prete-moi ta plume pour écrire un mot…
