L'Enfant Dansant Au Vent After William Butler Yeats To A Child Dancing In The Wind - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

Dansez près du rivage,
pourquoi se soucier
du vent, des flots, ou du bruitage?
Allez vite essuyer
ces tresses trempées, salées.
Jeune, vous n’avez pas connu
triompher l’imbécilité,
l’amour gagné et puis perdu,
ni l’ouvrier que le Temps tue,
ses gerbes restant à trier.
Pourquoi vous appeurez-vous
du vent clamant ses monstruosités?

Dance there upon the shore;
What need have you to care
For wind or water’s roar?
And tumble out your hair
That the salt drops have wet;
Being young you have not known
The fool’s triumph, nor yet
Love lost as soon as won,
Nor the best labourer dead
And all the sheaves to bind.
What need have you to dread
The monstrous crying of wind?
