by André Tellier (b. 1902)

I love you
Language: English 
A voice is on the morning breeze,
I love you!
A whisper run[s] among the trees,
I love you!

Murm’ring brooks go singing gay,
I love you!
Kissing the rushes on their way,
Calling and calling all the day,
I love you!

Would that you might always say,
I love you!
Sing it once more, again today,
I love you!

Come, where the cooling breezes blow,
Come[,] where the full rose sheds her glow,
Come[,] O come to my heart and you shall know,
I love you, I love you!
