Sur les bords du Jo‑Yeh

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

Sur les bords du Jo-yeh, les jeunes filles cueillant la fluer du nénuphar,
des touffes de fleurs et de feuilles les séparent;
elles rient et, sans se voir, èchangent de gais propos.
Un brillant soleil reflète au fond de l'eau leurs coquettes parures;
Le vent, qui se parfume dans leurs manches, en souléve le tissu léger.

Mais quels sont ces beaux jeunes gens qui se promènent sur la rive?
Trois par trois, cinq par cinq, ils apparaissent entre les saules pleureurs.
Tout à coup le cheval de l'un d'eux hennit et s'éloigne,
en foulant aux pieds des fleurs tombées.
Ce que voyant, l'une des jeunes filles semble interdite,
se trouble, et laisse percer l'agitation de son coeur.
