Default French Script translation

Does anyone know what the French Script translates to in English?

I'm just being curious.. because, I was thinking how great it would be to have it in spanish if it translates well.

I don't have it, and don't speak much French but, from the catalogue, it appears to be a pastoral poem. There are loads of multilingual people on here, though, and I'm sure one of them will be much more help!

The words on the stamp are taken from a French poem by Victor Hugo, "Since Flowering May." We are unable to print the English translation in its entirety because of possible copyright infringement of the translation, but you can get a sense of the mood from a few of the lines, printed below:

"Since flowering May calls us from the meadows, come! . . . and let the radiance of all nature bring out, like a double blossoming flower, the beauty on your brow and the love in your heart."

I got this off the demo site - HTH!
