An early poem by Victor Hugo entitled ’Voeu’ ("Wish"), 1828. Translation (AJ):

If I was the leaf rolled by The whirling wing of the wind, Or floating on running waters, And that we watch dreamingly;

I would give myself, still green, Breaking away from the branch, To the breeze which blows at dawn, To the brook coming from the west.

Further than the roaring river, Further than the vast forests, Further than the deep gorge, I would flee, I would run, I would go!

I would go to the daughter of the priest, The white-skin girl with black eyes, Who,during the day, sings at her window, And plays at her door in the evening.

At last, poor blown away leaf, I would, following my wishes, Land myself on her forehead, caught In the locks of her blond hair;

And there, on her leaning head, I would, even for a short moment, Be prouder than the white plume On the starry forehead of sultans!
