Dans la fontaine

Language: French (Français)

Je t'ai vue, reflétée dans la fontaine,
Dans la fontaine transparente ;
Ton image était lointaine
A peine apparente.

L’or de tes cheveux s’argentait 
Comme en un glauque clair de lune
Et ton regard se perdair
Dans l’eau plutôt brune.

Ton corsage pres que entre vu
Mourait enrêve
Vision de l’imprévu
Que l’esprit achève...

Achève dans l’incertain
Et sur ce miroir tremblant,
Tes mains fleurissaient soudain
Comme émergent des lotus blancs.
