Les hirondelles

Language: French (Français)

Voltigez hirondelles,
Voltigez près de moi,
Et reposez vos ailes
Au faîte des tourelles,
Sans effroi.

Voltigez, gracieuses,
Et fredonnant l'amour;
Que vos plumes soyeuses
Touchent, mysterieuses,
Mon séjour.

Voltigez, je regarde
Votre petit bec noir
Suspendre à ma mansarde
Votre nid qui me garde
Chaque soir.

Voltigez, hirondelles,
Voltigez près de moi...
