Réveillez‑vous, arbres des bois !

Language: French (Français)

   (faite pour une Féerie.)

Réveillez-vous, arbres des bois !
Tressaillez toutes à la fois,
Forêts profondes !
Et, loin des rayons embrasés,
À la fraîcheur de nos baisers
Livrez vos ondes !

Aimez-nous !
Chantez tous,
Pins et houx,
Fougères !
Nous passons,
Nous glissons,
Nous valsons,
Légères !

Oh ! comme, avec un bruit joyeux,
Nos ailes battent sous les cieux,
Grandes ouvertes !
Oh ! le délire et la douceur
De se rouler dans l'épaisseur
Des feuilles vertes !
