Le vent
Language: French (Français)  after the Danish (Dansk) 
Mère, mère ! Entends-tu ce gémissement plaintif ?
Ce n'est que le vent qui mugit, mon fils.
Ô mère. Est-ce seulement le vent ?

Mère, mère. Entends-tu ces si tristes pleurs ?
Ce n'est que le vent qui bruisse dans les feuilles et les rameaux.
Ô mère. Est-ce seulement le vent ?

Mère, mère. Entends-tu ces pas furtifs ?
Je te dis, mon enfant, c'est le vent, que le vent
Ô mère, mais qui donc est le vent ?
