Beau soir

Language: French (Français)

Lorsque au soleil couchant les rivières sont roses,
Et qu'un tiède frisson court sur les champs de blé,
Un conseil d'être heureux semble sortir des choses
  Et monter vers le cœur troublé ;

Un conseil de goûter le charme d'être au monde,
Cependant qu'on est jeune et que le soir est beau,
Car nous nous en allons comme s'en va cette onde :
  Elle à la mer, -- nous au tombeau !

Fair evening

Language: English after the French (Français)

When rivers are pink in the setting sun,
And a slight shiver runs through fields of wheat,
A suggestion to be happy seems to rise up from all things
  And ascends toward the troubled heart ;

A suggestion to taste the charms of the world
While one is young and the evening is fair,
For we are on our way just as this wave is:
  It is going to the sea, -- and we, to the grave!
