This little poem by Banville is dated 1842. The setting here is following a 5 beat pattern. The English rendition is attempting to follow the rhymes built on the 2 last verses of each stanza. But here is a literal translation (AJ): The water, in the big blue lakes Asleep, Is the mirror of the heavens: But I love better the eyes Of my sweetie!

For the shade sometimes To smile to us, A bird sings in the wood: But I love better The voice of my sweetie!

The dew, to the flower That has faded, Brings back its lively colour: But I love better a tear Of my sweetie!

Time comes to end everything. One’s forget. Me, to hold it in contempt, I only want a kiss Of my sweetie!

The rose on the linen Dies wilted. I love better for cushion The lips and the breast Of my sweetie!
