Literal translation (AJ):
1. Oh yes! the earth is beautiful and the sky is superb, But when your breast throbs and when your eyes gleam, When your graceful step runs so lightly on the grass That the sound of a lyre is less sweet than its sound;
2. When your fresh smile, dawn of your soul, Is breaking, beaming on me that it makes younger, And, from your pink mouth where its sweet flame is born, Raises to your brow like a sun to the zenith;
3. When, sometimes, without seeing you, your young voice reaches me Saying indistinct words that I often don’t grasp, Sound of a stream disappearing under the shade of its bank, Song of a hidden bird that one dreamingly listens to;
4. What’s coming out of so many sweet things, What’s exuding from your beauty, night and day, Like a fragrance formed by the breath of hundred roses, It’s far more than the earth and the sky: it is love!
