Le doux printemps a bu, dans le creux de...

Language: French (Français)

Le doux printemps a bu, dans le creux de sa main,
Le premier pleur qu'au bois laissa tomber l'aurore ;
Vous aimerez demain, vous qui n'aimiez encore,
Et vous qui n'aimiez plus, vous aimerez demain!
-- Le doux printemps a bu dans le creux de sa main.

Le printemps a cueilli, dans l'air, des fils de soie
Pour lier sa chaussure et courir par les bois ;
Vous aimerez demain pour la première fois,
Vous qui ne saviez pas cette immmortelle joie !
-- Le printemps a cueilli, dans l'air, des fils de soie.

Le printemps a jeté des fleurs sur le chemin
[Quand Myrto le]1 remplit de son rire sonore ;
Vous aimerez demain, vous qui n'aimiez encore,
Et vous qui n'aimiez plus, vous aimerez demain!
-- Le printemps a jeté des fleurs sur le chemin.
