Crois mon conseil, chère Climène

Language: French (Français)

Crois mon conseil, chère Climène;
Pour laisser arriver le soir,
Je te prie, allons-nous asseoir
Sur le bord de cette fontaine.

N'ouïs-tu pas soupirer Zéphire,
De merveille et d'amour atteint,
Voyant des roses sur ton teint,
Qui ne sont pas de son empire?

Sa bouche d'odeur toute pleine
A soufflé sur notre chemin,
Mêlant un esprit de jasmin
À l'ambre de ta douce haleine.
