Ye locusts, winged tribes,
How harmoniously you collect together !
Right is it that your descendants
Should be multitudinous !

Ye locusts, winged tribes,
How sound your wings in flight !
Right is it that your descendents
Should be as in unbroken strings !

Ye locusts, winged tribes,
How you cluster together !
Right is it that your descendents
Should be in swarms !

Legge 5

Sauterelles ailées, que vous voilà nombreuses !
Puissent vos descendants avoir grandes vertus !

Granet VI.
