" But there is, throughout the markets of Provence
So many attractive girls, so many attractive girls
That in the middle of fennel, melons and celeries
I have well from time to time some ideas which dance
Night traveler, me who in swarm
Crossed looks which I did not see
I look at daybreak forward to finding on my steps
These girls of the sun who laugh and who call me
The morning to the market "
