Les coquillages

Language: French (Français)

Chaque coquillage incrusté
Dans la grotte où nous nous aimâmes
A sa particularité,

L'un a la pourpre de nos âmes
Dérobée au sang de nos coeurs
Quand je brûle et que tu t'enflammes;

Cet autre affecte tes langueurs
Et tes pâleurs alors que, lasse,
Tu m'en veux de mes yeux moqueurs;

Celui-ci contrefait la grâce
De ton oreille, et celui-là
Ta nuque rose, courte et grasse;

Mais un, entre autres, me troubla.
