Le sommeil m'est cher, et plus encore d'être de pierre,
Tant que le préjudice et la honte durent ;
ne pas voir, ne pas entendre, me sont une grande fortune ;
mais ne me réveille pas, je t'en prie, parle bas.

Amour, ta beauté n'est pas une chose mortelle :
aucun visage parmi nous ne peut égaler
l'image du cœur que tu enflammes et domines
avec un autre feu et émeut avec d'autres ailes.

Mon feu brûle même dans le froid glacial,
mais ce feu ardent pour moi n'est qu'un froid glacial,
Amour, dissous est le lien insoluble,
c'est la mort pour moi ce qui m'était fête et joie.
  Ce premier amour qui fut jadis le temps et l'espace
dans la misère extrême est un lourd fardeau
Pour l'âme lasse...
