Available translation(s): ENG GER
Une belle à la taille svelte
se promène sous les arbres de la forêt,
en se reposant de temps en temps.
Ayant relevé de la main
les trois voiles d'or
qui lui couvre les seins,
elle renvoie à la lune
les rayons dont elle était baignée.

Madras: Eine Schöne
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the French (Français) 
Eine Schöne von schlanker Gestalt
ging im Wald spazieren,
sich dann und wann ausruhend.
Indes sie mit der Hand 
die drei goldenen Schleier löst,
die ihren Busen verhüllen,
schickt sie dem Mond
die Strahlen zurück, von denen sie überglänzt war.
