Contemporary French Poetry, trans. Jethro Bithell (London and Felling-on-Tyne; Walter Scott, 1912): 142. Internet Archive. Internet Archive.
1In summer evenings blue, pricked by the wheat
2On rustic paths the thin grass I shall tread,
3And feel its freshness underneath my feet,
4And, dreaming, let the wind bathe my bare head.
5I shall not speak, nor think, but, walking slow
6Through Nature, I shall rove with Love my guide,
7As gipsies wander, where, they do not know,
8Happy as one walks by a woman's side.
