French.png French text

Les papillons couleur de neige
Volent par essaims sur la mer;
Beaux papillons bleus, quand pourrai-je
Prendre le bleu chemin de l'air.

Savez-vous, ô belle des belles,
Ma bayadère aux yeux de jais,
S'ils me voulaient prêter leurs ailes,
Dites, savez-vous, où j'irais?

Sans prendre un seul baiser aux roses,
À travers vallons et forêts,
J'irais à vos lèvres micloses,
Fleur de mon âme, et j'y mourrais.
