Le repos, l'ombre, le silence

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Le repos, l'ombre, le silence,
Tout m'oblige en ces lieux à faire confidence
De mes ennuis les plus secrets.
Je me sens soulagé dy conter mon martyre,
Je ne le dis qu'à des forests ;
Mais, enfin, c'est toujours le dire.

Si l'on veut parler sans rien taire
On est en liberté dans ce lieu solitaire,
On ne craint point les indiscrets :
Je me sens soulagé d'y conter mon martyre,
Je ne le dis qu'à des forests ;
Mais, enfin, cest toujours le dire.
