Qui sommes nous ?
Living in the green of the meadows and the blue of the hills,
Root trees climbing the ravines,
Streams dazzled with silver fish;
To live on the cheerful rattling of harvests,
Of the clear gasping of stirred springs,
Spring mornings blowing their mist,
Octobers sowing leaves and fruits
And lunar enchantment throughout the nights.
