Un Canadien Errant (The Lost Canadian)
Antoine Gerin-Lajoie
Un Canadien Errant [A wandering Canadian,
Banni de ses foyers, banned from his hearths,
Parcourait en pleurant travelled while crying
Des pays etrangers. in foreign lands.
Parcourait en pleurant travelled while crying
Des pays etrangers. in foreign lands.

Un jour, triste et pensif, One day, sad and pensive,
Assis au bord des flots, sitting by the flowing waters,
Au courant fugitif to the fleeing current
Il adressa ces mots: he addressed these words:
Au courant fugitif to the fleeing current
Il adressa ces mots: he addressed these words:

"Si tu vois mon pays, "If you see my country,
Mon pays malheureux, my unhappy country,
Va dire a mes amis go tell my friends
Que je me souviens d'eux. that I remember them.
Va dire a mes amis go tell my friends
Que je me souviens d'eux. that I remember them.

O jours si pleins d'appas, O days so full of charms,
Vous etes disparus... you have vanished...
Et ma patrie, helas! And my native land, alas!
Je ne la verrai plus. I will see it no more.
Et ma patrie, helas! And my native land, alas!
Je ne la verrai plus. I will see it no more. ]
