1. Mon enfant, ma soeur,
    Songe à la douceur
    D’aller là-bas vivre ensemble!
    Aimer à loisir,
    Aimer et mourir
    Au pays qui te ressemble!

    Think, would it not be
    Sweet to live with me
    All alone, my child, my love? —
    Sleep together, share
    All things, in that fair
    Country you remind me of?

    (Baudelaire, L’invitation au voyage.)

    (Translation Edna St. Millay)
