If you want, we will make our house so beautiful That we will stay there during summers and winter ! We will see frozen water thawing out around, And yellowed trees turning green again. Harmonious days and happy seasons Will go by on the luminous side of the road, Like beautiful children in cheerful groups Intertwining, playing and holding hands. A rose tree will climb in front of our window To christen the day with dew and fragrances ; Docile herds that a child is grazing Will spread on the fields their quiet naivety. The frivolous sun and the thoughtful moon Which wind around the smooth trunks of poplars Will reflect in us their weary or lively souls, According to clear middays or familiar evenings. We will make our hearts so simple and so gullible That the charming spirits of past tales Will come back to inhabit old clocks With secret, busy and courteous expressions. In winter evenings, to better feel the flames, We will both try to be a bit cold, And bright lights will dance in our souls In the glimmer of the burning wood, which will look joyful. Touched by the gentleness brought by Spring We will have more unsettling dreams in April And Love will quietly play on our door And count days with white pebbles.
