Eau printanière

Language: French

Eau printanière, pluie harmonieuse et douce,
Ainsi qu'une rigole à travers le verger
Et plus que l'arrosoir balancé sur la mousse,
Comme tu prends mon cœur en ton réseau léger!

À ma fenêtre ou bien sous le hangar des routes
Où je cherche un abri, de quel bonheur secret
Viens-tu mêler ma peine? Et dans tes belles gouttes
Quel est ce souvenir ou cet ancien regret?

Translation(s): ENG

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, it is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
