Le pavillon de porcelaine

Language: French (Français) after the Chinese (中文)

Au milieu du petit lac artificiel,
s'élève un pavillon de porcelaine verte et blanche;
on y arrive par un pont de jade,
qui se voûte comme le dos d'un tigre.

Dans ce pavillon, quelques amis, vêtus de robes claires,
boivent ensemble des tasses de vin tiede.

Ils causent gaiement, ou tracent des vers,
en repoussant leurs chapeaux en arrière,
en relevant un peu leurs manches,

Et, dans le lac, où le petit pont, renversé,
semble un croissant de jade, quelques amis,
vêtus de robes claires, boivent, la tête en bas dans un pavillon de porcelaine.
