J'ai voulu ce matin te rapporter des...

Language: French (Français)

J'ai voulu ce matin te rapporter des roses ;
Mais j'en avais tant pris dans mes ceintures closes,
Que les nœuds trop serrés n'ont pu les contenir.

Les nœuds ont éclaté : les roses envolées,
Dans le vent, à la mer s'en sont toutes allées :
Elles ont suivi l'eau pour ne plus revenir.

La vague en a paru rouge et comme enflammée :
Ce soir, [ma]1 robe encore en est tout embaumée.
[Respirez-en]2 sur moi l'odorant souvenir.
