Les trois chansons   by Victor Hugo

Viens! – une flûte invisible
Soupire dans les vergers.
La chanson la plus paisible
Est la chanson des bergers.

Le vent ride, sous l’yeuse,
Le sombre miroir des eaux. –
La chanson la plus joyeuse
Est la chanson des oiseaux.

Que nul soin ne te tourmente.
Aimons-nous! aimons toujours! –
La chanson la plus charmante
Est la chanson des amours.

The three songs   translation by H. Lindqvist

Come! an invisible flute
sighs in the fruit gardens
the most peaceful song
is the song of the shepherds

The wind ripples
the dark mirrored water
beneath the holly
the happiest song
is the song of the birds

Let no worry burden you
let us love! Let‘s always love!
the most enjoyable song
is the song of love
