Translation © possibly by Samuel Barclay Beckett (1906 - 1989)

À la lisière de la forêt, —
Language: French (Français) 
À la lisière de la forêt, — 
les fleurs de rêve tintent, 
éclatent, éclairent, — 
la fille à lèvre d’orange, 
les genoux croisés dans le clair déluge 
qui sourd des prés, 
nudité qu’ombrent, traversent 
et habillent les arcs-en-ciel, la flore, la mer.
