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.

L'allée est sans fin
Sous le ciel, divin
D'être pâle ainsi !
Sais-tu qu'on serait
Bien sous le secret
De ces arbres-ci ?

Des messieurs bien mis,
Sans nul doute amis
Des Royers-Collards,
Vont vers le château.
J'estimerais beau
D'être ces vieillards.

Le château, tout blanc
Avec, à son flanc,
Le soleil couché,
Les champs à l'entour...
Oh ! que notre amour
N'est-il là niché !

Votre âme est un paysage choisi
Que vont charmant masques et bergamasques,
Jouant du luth et dansant, et quasi
Tristes sous leurs déguisements fantasques!

Tout en chantant sur le mode mineur
L'amour vainqueur et la vie opportune.
Ils n'ont pas l'air de croire à leur bonheur,
Et leur chanson se mêle au clair de lune,

Au calme clair de lune triste et beau,
Qui fait rêver, les oiseaux [dans]1 les arbres,
Et sangloter d'extase les jets d'eau,
Les grands jets d'eau sveltes parmi les marbres.
