Ceux qui, parmi les morts d'amour

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Ceux qui, parmi les morts d'amour,
Ont péri par le suicide
Sont enterrés au carrefour
Là s'épanouit et réside

Une fleur bleue étrange fleur
Aussi rare que sa couleur
Aucun nom ne l'a désignée
C'est la fleur de l'âme damnée!

Pendant la nuit au carrefour
Je soupire dans le silence
Au clair de lune se balance
La fleur des damnés de l'amour!
