Il pleure dans mon cœur

Language: French (Français)

Il pleure dans mon cœur
Comme il pleut sur la ville ;
Quelle est cette langueur
Qui pénètre mon cœur ?

Ô bruit doux de la pluie,
Par terre et sur les toits!
Pour un cœur qui s'ennuie,
Ô le [chant]1 de la pluie !

Il pleure sans raison
Dans [ce]2 cœur qui s'écœure.
Quoi! nulle trahison ? ...
[Ce]3 deuil est sans raison.

C'est bien la pire peine,
De ne savoir pourquoi
Sans amour et sans haine
Mon cœur a tant de peine!
