by Émile Albert Kayenberg (1860 - 1929), as Albert Giraud

Lune malade
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG
O Lune, nocturne phtisique,
Sur le noir oreiller des cieux,
Ton immense regard fièvreux
M'attire comme une musique!

Tu meurs d'un amour chimérique,
Et d'un désir silencieux,
O Lune, nocturne phtisique,
Sur le noir oreiller des cieux!

Mais 'dans sa volupté physique
L'amant qui passe insoucieux
Prend pour des rayons gracieux
Ton sang blanc et mélancolique,
O Lune, nocturne phtisique!
