Fête galante

Language: French (Français)

Voilà Sylvandre et Lycas et Myrtil
[C'est aujourd'hui]1 fête chez Cydalise.
[Enchantant l'air de son]2 parfum subtil,
[Au clair de lune]3 où tout s'idéalise
Avec la rose Aminthe rivalise.
Philis, Eglé, qui suivent leurs amants,
Cherchent l'ombrage [et les abris]4 charmants.
Dans le soleil qui s'irrite et qui joue,
Luttant d'orgueil avec les diamants,
Sur le chemin, le Paon blanc fait la roue.
