To shallow rivers, to whose falls

Language: English

To shallow rivers, to whose falls
Melodious birds sings madrigals;
There will we make our peds of roses,
And a thousand fragrant posies.

Melodious birds sing madrigals --
When as I sat in Pabylon --
And a thousand vagram posies.
To shallow &c.

Près des sources peu profondes dont la chute
Inspire des madrigaux aux mélodieux oiseaux,
Nous ferons nos lits de rose
Et mille guirlandes odorantes.

Inspire des madrigaux aux mélodieux oiseaux...
Quand j'étais à papylone...
Et mille guirlandes odorantes...
