You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

La rosée/ S'envole et remonte aux cieux

Language: French (Français)

  La rosée
S'envole et remonte aux cieux
Quand le soleil radieux
  L'a baisée.
Ainsi les pleurs de mes yeux
S'évaporent, quand tu veux,
  [La]1 rosée.

Ton doux chant sous la ramée
Semble la voix enrhumée
  De Guignol,
Lorsque de ma bien-aimée
Chante la voix parfumée,

S'en revient quand le printemps
A chassé les noirs autans
  À coups d'aile.
Ainsi tes ris éclatants
Ramènent de mes vingt ans

  Mes amours
Sont comme un vin qui détone
Et fait craquer de l'automne
  Le velours.
Et je chante, et je festonne,
Et je ris, lorsque j'entonne
  Mes amours.
