Lune au lavoir

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Comme una pâle lavandière,
Elle lave ses failles blanches,
Ses bras d'argent hors de leurs manches,
Au fil chantant de la rivière

Les vents à travers la clairière
Soufflent dans leurs flûtes sans anches.
Comme une pâle lavandière
Elle lave ses failles blanches

La céleste et douce ouvrière
Nouant sa jupe sur ses hanches,
Sous le baiser frôlant des branches,
Étend son linge de lumière,
Comme une pâle lavandière.
