Le Renard qui dort

Dans la joie de vivre,
Animal totalement ivre,
 
Le renard qui dort
Boit d'une fraîche source
Pour se reposer après course
L'assoupissant encor
 
Dans quelques instants
Va poindre la rouge aurore.
Vivifié par la boisson d'or,
Le songe, en se levant
 
Le renard est prêt à courir
Longtemps avant de mourir.

The Sleeping Fox Is There

An animal, happy to be alive
Its joy taking an upward dive
 
The sleeping fox is there
To drink the most fresh water
After running in order to recover
Still more tired than it can bear
 
In a moment the day
Will break red
Uplifted for having drunk in bed
The dream, getting up and away
 
The fox will run, not shy,
Long before it must die.
 
Thanks!
