The Lied, Art Song, and Choral Texts Archive


Language: French

Les oiseaux d'alentour 
chantent dans ce bocage, 
et je connois à leur ramage 
que rien ne manque plus 
au bonheur de leurs feux. 
Ils goûtent avant moi 
les fruits de la constance; 
Peut-être mieux traités, 
sont-ils plus amoureux.

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.
