A Toast

Marcel Pagnol (1895-1974), Jean de Florette, chapter 11 (tr. W.E. van Heyningen):
The hunchback raised his glass very high and said with a certain solemnity:

"I drink to Mother Nature, to the fragrant hills, I drink to the cicadas, to the pine woods, to the breeze, to the rocks of thousands of years, I drink to the blue sky!"
In French:
Le bossu leva son verre très haut, et dit avec une certaine solennité:

«Je bois à la Mère Nature, aux collines odorantes, je bois aux cigales, à la pinède, à la brise, aux roches millénaires, je bois à l'azur!»
