Sur la source elle se pencha
Language: French (Français)
Sur la source elle se pencha;
La source doubla son image,
Et ce fut un charmant mirage,
Qu'un peu de vent effaroucha.
Sous les grands bois elle chanta :
L'oiseau doubla son chant sauvage,
Et ce fut un charmant ramage,
Que le vent lointain emporta.
Quand j'effleurai son doux visage,
Sa bouche ma bouche doubla...
Le vent peut balayer la plage,
[Ô Myrto]1, que me fait l'orage ?
-- Ton baiser reste toujours là !
