possibly by Louis Michel James Lacour Delâtre (1815 - 1893) and possibly by H. Trianon

Ouvre ton cœur
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG ITA
La marguerite a fermé sa corolle,
L'ombre a fermé les yeux du jour.
Belle, me tiendras-tu parole?
Ouvre ton coeur à mon amour.

Ouvre ton coeur, ô jeune ange, à ma flamme,
Qu'un rêve charme ton sommeil.
Je veux reprendre mon âme,
Comme une fleur s'ouvre au soleil!
