This quiet Dust was Gentlemen and Ladies

Language: English

This quiet Dust was Gentlemen and Ladies,
And Lads and Girls;
Was laughter and ability and sighing,
And frocks and curls.

This passive place a Summer's nimble mansion,
Where Bloom and Bees
Fulfilled their Oriental Circuit,
Then ceased like these.

Cette Poussière tranquille était des...

Language: French (Français) after the English

Cette Poussière tranquille était des Messieurs et des Dames,
Et des Garçons et des Filles ;
Était rire et compétence et Soupirs,
Et Robes et Boucles.

Cet endroit inerte était un château agité d'Été
Où Fleurs et Abeilles
Vivent un Circuit Oriental
Puis cessent, comme eux --
