Original text and translations

French.png French text

Sans lever le pied, j’abattrai la rosée,
en un jardin, seulette suis allée,
assez longtemps seulette égarée,
mon ami vint qui ainsi m’a trouvée,
deux ou trois fois sur l’herbe m’a jetée,
sans lever le pied j’abattrai la rosée.

If I do not slow down, I’ll spoil the morning dew.
Alone I went into a leafy lieu,
For quite some time I strolled beneath the blue,
My boyfriend came along and near me drew
Then twice or thrice upon the grass me threw,
If I do not slow down, I’ll spoil the morning dew.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
