French.png French text

L’ombre des arbres dans la rivière embrumée
Meurt comme de la fumée,
Tandis qu’en l’air, parmi les ramures réelles,
Se plaignent les tourterelles.

Combien ô voyageur, ce paysage blême
Te mira blême toi-même,
Et que tristes pleuraient dans les hautes feuillées,
Tes espérances noyées.
