Text and translation of Berlioz Les Nuits d'été

SUMMER NIGHTS

VILLANELLE
When the new season comes
and the cold weather has gone,
the pair of us will go, my pretty one,
to gather lilies of the valley in

Shaking free beneath our feet
  the dewdrops
that one sees a-tremble in the
  early morn,
we will go to hear the blackbirds sing.
