Mes vers fuiraient, doux et frêles,Vers votre jardin si beau,Si mes vers avaient des ailes,1 l"oiseau.Ils voleraient, étincelles,Vers votre foyer qui rit,Si mes vers avaient des ailes,1 l"esprit.Près de vous, purs et fidèles,Ils accourraient, nuit et jour,Si mes vers avaient des ailes,1 l"amour !

My verses would flee, sweet and fragile,To your garden so lovely,If my verses had wings,Wings as the bird has.They would fly, these sparks,To your laughing hearth,If my verses had wings,Wings as the spirit has.To you, pure and faithful,They would hurry, night and day,If my verses had wings,Wings as Love has!
