Dans un sommeil que charmait ton image 
Je rêvais le bonheur, ardent mirage,
Tes yeux étaient plus doux, ta voix pure et sonore,
Tu rayonnais comme un ciel éclairé par l'aurore;

Tu m'appelais et je quittais la terre
Pour m'enfuir avec toi vers la lumière,
Les cieux pour nous entr'ouvraient leurs nues,
Splendeurs inconnues, lueurs divines entrevues,

Hélas! Hélas! triste réveil des songes
Je t'appelle, ô nuit, rends moi tes mensonges,
Reviens, reviens radieuse,
Reviens ô nuit mystérieuse!

Després d'un somni
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the French (Français) 
En un somni que encisava la teva imatge
He somniat la felicitat, ardent miratge,
Els teus ulls eren més dolços, la teva veu pura i sonora,
brillaves com un cel il·luminat per l'aurora.

Em cridaves i jo deixava la terra
per escapar-me amb tu cap a la llum,
Els cels entreobrien els núvols per nosaltres,
Esplendors desconeguts, clarors divines entrevistes.

Ai! Ai! Trist despertar dels somnis
Apel·lo a tu, oh nit, torna'm les teves mentides,
Torna, torna radiant,
Torna oh nit misteriosa!
