Ballade de la reine morte d'aimer

Language: French (Fran├žais)

En Bohême était une Reine,
Douce soeur du Roi de Thulé,
Belle entre toutes les Reines,
Reine par sa toute Beauté.

Le grand Trouvère de Bohême
Un soir triste d'automne roux
Lui murmura le vieux: »Je t'aime!«
Âmes folles et coeurs si fous!...

Et la Très Belle toute blanche
Le doux Poète tant aima
Que sur l'heure son âme blanche
Vers les étoiles s'exhala...

Les grosses cloches de Bohême
Et les clochettes de Thulé
Chantèrent l'Hosanna suprême
De la Reine morte d'aimer.
