Doux réveil des bois et des près

Language: French (Français)

Doux réveil des bois et des près
D'or et de pourpre diaprès,
Rapide oubli des jours moroses,
Salut ! printemps, père des roses !

Si tu la revois sous la fleur
De sa virginale le pâleur,
Dis à Dieu qu'il me la renvoie,
Celle qui fut toute ma joie,

-- Celle qui fait tout mon souci !

Voyant que je la pleure ainsi,
Printemps joyeux, ramène aussi
L'essaim des rires de sa bouche,
Doux bruit dont mon cœur s'effarouche,

Bruit charmant, cruel et moqueur...
[Ramène-moi, printemps vainqueur,]1
L'amoureuse, que j'ai servie :
[Celle qui fut tout ma vie,

-- Celle qui reste tout mon cœur !]2
