1. Chanson d'automne [sung text not yet checked]

Les sanglots longs
des violons
   de l'automne
blessent mon coeur
d'une langueur
   monotone.

Tout suffocant
et blême, quand
   sonne l'heure.
je me souviens
des jours anciens,
   et je pleure...

Et je m'en vais
au vent mauvais
   qui m'emporte
de çà, de là,
pareil à la
   feuille morte...

6. La lune blanche [sung text not yet checked]

La lune blanche 
Luit dans les bois ;
De chaque branche 
Part une voix 
Sous la ramée...

Ô bien aimée.

L'étang reflète,
Profond miroir,
La silhouette
Du saule noir
Où le vent pleure...

Rêvons, c'est l'heure.

Un vaste et tendre
Apaisement
Semble descendre
Du firmament
Que l'astre irise...

C'est l'heure exquise.
