Ivresse de Lune

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Le vin que l'on boit par les yeux
A flots verts de la Lune coule,
Et submerge comme une houle
Les horizons silencieux.

De doux conseils pernicieux
Dans le philtre nagent en foule:
Le vin que l'on boit par les yeux
A flots verts de la Lune coule.

Le Poète religieux
De l'étrange absinthe se soûle,
Aspirant, - jusqu'à ce qu'il roule,
Le geste fou, la tête aux cieux, -
Le vin que l'on boit par les yeux!
