2. La tombe et la rose [sung text not yet checked]

La tombe dit à la rose :
-- Des pleurs dont l'aube t'arrose
Que fais-tu, fleur des amours ?
La rose dit à la tombe :
-- Que fais-tu de ce qui tombe
Dans ton gouffre ouvert toujours ?

La rose dit: -- Tombeau sombre,
De ces pleurs je fais dans l'ombre
Un parfum d'ambre et de miel.
La tombe dit: -- Fleur plaintive,
De chaque âme qui m'arrive
Je fais un ange du ciel.
