Hymne à Venus

Language: French

O Vénus, au charmant visage,
Du haut de son trône sauvage
Quand Phoebé colore la plage
Su l'orbe étoilé de la nuit
Les pêcheurs de corail voient
Souvent  ton image,
Qui se baigne en silence
Et puis, comme un nuage, s' évanouit.
C'est l'heure pâle des mystères
Les falaises sont solitaires!
Bercé sur les vagues améres
L'ombre de ton corps radieux.

Submitted by Francesco D'Angelo

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, the Archive 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.
