TEXT

"Garde don rêve"

(Adapted by Marie-Claire Saindon)

Garde ce rêve sous ton front,
Garde une étoile pour tous les cieux;
Dans ta mémoire, garde un long parfum
Des sons qui t'ont charmé.


Garde, musical encore à tes oreilles,
Le bruit des eaux, des ruisseaux,
des arbres et du vent;
Baigne ton songe dans leurs flots
Embaumés de couleurs sans pareils.


Et au tréfonds de toi,
Au point le plus intime,
Où marchent, côte à côte,
La crainte et l'espoir,
Garde ce rêve exaltant
Ton esprit
À l'infini.

Courtesy translation:

Keep this dream in your brow,
Keep a star for all the heavens;
In your mind, hold onto the fragrance
Of those inspiring sounds.


Still musical to your ears,
Hold onto the sound
Of water, streams, trees and wind;
Bathe your dream in their waves
Anointed with unmatched tones.


And in the deepest part of you,
At the most intimate spot,
Where walk, side by side,
Fear and hope,
Hold onto this dream exalting
Your spirit
To infinity.
