To venerate the simple days

Language: English

To venerate the simple days
Which lead the seasons by,
Needs but to remember
That from you or [me]1
They may take the trifle
Termed mortality!

To invest existence with a stately air,
Needs but to remember
That the acorn there
Is the egg of forests
For the upper air!


Translation(s): FRE GER

Pour vénérer les simples jours

Language: French (Français) after the English

Pour vénérer les simples jours
Qui mènent les saisons
Il suffit de se souvenir
Qu'à toi ou à moi
Ils peuvent prendre la bagatelle
Appelée mortalité !

Pour donner à l'existence un air majestueux
Il suffit de se souvenir
Que le Gland qui est là
Est l'œuf des forêts
Pour atteindre l'Air d'en haut !
