Rêverie orientale

Language: French (Français)

Le soir étend son voile humide,
La caravane est moins rapide,
Et notre étoile qui nous guide
Jusqu'au saint lieu nous conduira.

J'aime à toi voir, ô nuit brillante,
Prendre ta robe scintillante,
Pendant qu'à moi voix suppliante
Ton doux parfum m'enivrera.

Et pour les Cieux quittant la terre,
Montant vers la voûte éphémère
Avec l'encens de ma prière,
Ô nuit, mon coeur te bénira!
