C'est moi

Language: French (Français)

Si ta marche attristée
S'égare au fond d'un bois,
Dans la feuille agitée
Reconnais-tu ma voix?
Et dans la fontaine argentée,
Crois-tu me voir quand tu te vois?

Qu'une rose s'effeuille 
En roulant sur tes pas,
Si ta pitié la cueille, 
Dis! ne me plains-tu pas?
Et de ton sein qui la receuille, 
Mon nom s'exhale-t-il tout bas?

La feuille frémissante,
L'eau qui parle en courant,
La rose languissante
Qui te cherche en mourant;
Prends-y garde, ô ma vie absente!
C'est moi qui t'appelle en pleurant.
