Mon bras pressait ta taille frêle

Language: French (Français)

Mon bras pressait ta taille frêle 
Et souple comme le roseau;
Ton sein palpitait comme l'aile
D'un jeune oiseau!

Longtemps muets, nous contemplâmes
Le ciel où s'éteignait le jour.
Que se passait-il dans nos âmes?
Amour! Amour!

Comme un ange qui se dévoile,
Tu me regardais, dans ma nuit,
Avec ton beau regard d'étoile,
Qui m'éblouit.
