English translation

Je borne mes rêveries
I limit my reveries
À l’émail de nos prairies.
To the dazzling colours of our meadows.
Je vais passer mes loisirs
I take my recreation
Sur les bords d’une fontaine.
Beside a fountain.
Si je pousse des soupirs,
If I utter a sigh,
C’est pour recevoir l’haleine
It is to receive the breath
Des rafraîchissants zéphyrs.
Of the refreshing zephyrs.
