Donc, vous allez fleurir encor, charmants parterres,
Déjà se courbent en arceaux
Et s'emplissent de bruit, dans les vieux cimetières,
Les arbres, gardiens des tombeaux.

Couvrez d'un tendre vert, arbres, vos branches fortes!
Quand viendra l'autan détesté,
Il vous faudra tout l'or des belles feuilles mortes
Pour en rehausser la beauté!

So you will bloom again
Language: English  after the French (Français) 
Then you will bloom again charming flowerbeds,
Already bend in arches
And fill with noise in the old cemeteries
The trees, guardians of the tombs.

Cover with a tender green, trees, your strong branches!
When the hated Autan comes
You will need all the gold of the beautiful dead leaves
To enhance [your] beauty!
