Au soleil couchant

Language: French (Français)

Au soleil couchant,
Toi qui vas cherchant
Fortune, 
Prends garde de choir;
La terre, le soir,
Est brune.
L'océan trompeur
Couvre de vapeur
La dune.
Vois, à l'horizon,
Aucune maison 
Aucune!

Maint voleur te suit,
La chose est, la nuit,
Commune.
Les dames des bois
Nous gardent parfois
Rancune.
Elles vont errer:
Crains d'en rencontrer
Quelqu'une.
Les lutins de l'air
Vont danser au clair
De lune.
