Les roses

Language: French (Français)

Lorsque le ciel de saphir est [en]1 feu,
Lorsque l'Eté, de son haleine touche
La folle Nymphe amoureuse, et par jeu
Met un charbon rougissant sur sa bouche;
Quand sa chaleur, dédaigneuse et farouche,
Fait tressaillir le myrte et le cyprès,
On sent brûler sous ses magiques traits
Les fronts blémis, et les lèvres [décloses]2,
Et le riant feuillage des forêts,
Et vous aussi, coeurs enflammés des Roses.
