La mer

La mer
qu'on voit danser le long des golfes clairs
a des reflets d'argent,
la mer,
des reflets changeants
sous la pluie.
La mer
au ciel d'été confond
ses blancs moutons
avec les anges si purs,
la mer bergère d'azur
près des étangs,
ces grands roseaux mouillés.
ces oiseaux blancs
et ces maisons rouillées.
La mer
les a bercés
le long des golfes clairs
et d'une chanson d'amour,
la mer
a bercé mon cœur pour la vie.

The Sea

The sea,
We see dancing along the shores of clear bays,
Shimmers with silver
The sea
Changing shimmers
Under the rain
The sea
With the summer sky
Mix up her white sheep
With the angels so pure
The infinite azure shepherdess
By the ponds
Those big wet reeds
Those white birds
And those rusty houses
The sea
Has cradled them
Along the shores of clear bays
And with a love song
The sea
Has rocked my heart for life

I just changed "horses" to "sheep" and "Sea" to "See" (for "voyez").
