Si ton front est comme un roseau

Language: French (Français)

Si ton front est comme un roseau
Qui s'effare dès qu'un oiseau
  Le touche,
Mon baiser se fera moins prompt
Pour ne pas étonner ce front
  Farouche !

Si tes yeux, ces lacs lumineux,
N'aiment pas qu'un soir triste en eux
  Se mire,
Pour ne pas assombrir tes yeux,
Je prendrai le masque joyeux
  Du rire !

Mais si ton cœur las est pareil
Au lys qui, brûlant au soleil
  Ses charmes,
Penche, de rosée altéré,
Sans feindre, hélas ! j'y verserai
  Des larmes.
