Le laurier blessé

Language: French (Français)

Ah ! Ah ! hélas... hélas...
 Pleurez, ô  femmes de Syrie,
Criez : « Hélas ! ma Seigneurie !»
Toutes les fleurs se sont flétries,
Criez, pleurez...
Eros ! Pleurez !
Il descend vers les noires portes.
Pleurez !
Tout ce qui est beau, l’Hadès morne
Renversez les torches,
Eros, pleurez !
