Il pastor, se torna aprile

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Il pastor, se torna aprile,
Non rammenta i giorni algenti;
Dall'ovile all'ombre usate
Riconduce i bianchi armenti,
E le avene abbandonate
Fa di nuovo risonar.

Il nocchier, placato il vento,
Più non teme o si scolora;
Ma contento in su la prora
Va cantando in faccia al mar.

Le berger, quand avril revient

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Le berger, quand avril revient,
Ne se souvient plus des jours de gel ;
Du bercail vers l'ombre habituelle,
Il mène son blanc troupeau,
Et les chênes abandonnés,
Il les fait à nouveau résonner. 

Le marin, quand le vent tombe,
N'a plus de crainte ou le visage pâle ;
Mais tout heureux à la proue
Il va en chantant face à la mer.
