Ombre de mon amant

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Ombre de mon amant, ombre toujours plaintive,
Hélas ! que voulez-vous ! je meurs.
Soyez un moment attentive
Au funeste récit de mes vives douleurs.
C'est sur cette fatale rive
Que j'ay veu vostre sang couler avec mes pleurs.
Rien ne peut arrester mon ame fugitive,
Je cède à mes cruels malheurs.
Ombre de mon amant, ombre toujours plaintive,
Hélas ! que voulez-vous ? je meurs.
