Fleur du Pécher

Language: French (Français) after the Unknown Language

Fleur du pécher frémissait 
Comme une aile rose du papillon crée la brise.
Souriante l'eau qui reflête l'arbre fin.
Quand finiront mes peines?
Le souffle d'Orient porte jusqu'à moi 
une odeur douce des péches en fleurs.
Epuissé je les sens.
Et levers maladif sort de mes lèvres.
Ô vienne la nuit et ouvre tes bras aimables à ma peine.
Le sommeil désiré.
