E chove... Uma goteira, fora,
Como alguém que canta de mágoa,
Canta monótona e sonora
A balada do pingo d'água.
[Chovia quando foste embora.]1

Au long de ces canaux
Le clair de lune
Des lagunes
Danse dans l'eau dans l'eau...

Aux soupirs assoupis
Des mandolines,
En sourdine
Meurent les lys, les lys, les lys,
Les lys sur mon perron...
Les feuilles mortes
Sur l'eau morte
Pleurent ton nom...

Un friselis tout blanc
Clôt le silence...
Somnolences
D'anciens jardins,
D'anciens jardins lassants
Bleuis de lune,
La beguine
Des blans bassins.

Au long des vieux canaux
Le clair de lune
Des lagunes
Danse dans l'eau, dans l'eau...
dans l'eau...

Para cá, para lá...
Para cá, para lá...
Um novelozinho de linha...
Para cá, para lá...
Para cá, para lá...
Oscila no ar pela mão de uma criança
(Vem e vai...)
Que delicadamente e quase a adormecer o balança
- Psio... -
Para cá, para lá...
Para cá e...
- O novelozinho caiu.

Palès fait gazouiller la flûte sous ses doigts,
Mélène sous sa lèvre anime le hautbois,
Et chacun à son tour que la lutte stimule
Module un chant qui monte au fond du crépuscule ;
Hermione aux longs yeux de longs cils ombragés,

Sur la petite place, au lever de l'aurore,
Le marché rit joyeux, bruyant, multicolore,
Pêle-mêle étalant sur ses tréteaux boiteux
