Le vin

Language: French

Vins d'Espagne et vins de Hongrie,
Vins d'Alicante et de Schiraz,
Tout au ras, 
Emplisez ma coupe fleurie!
Eclairez mes yeux obscurcis,
Cachez à mon âme ravie
Les soucis
Et les noirs chagrins de la vie!
Roses vierges, blonds échansons,
O beauté! mêle ton doux rire,
Tes chansons,
Aux extases de mon délire!
Couronnez-moi de lierre en fleurs!
Versez! que la brumeuse aurore
Toute en pleurs!
Me retrouve buvant
Buvant encore!
Avec un bruit de grandes eaux
Le vin à longs fleuves ruisselle!
Iacchos! Iacchos! Iacchos! Iacchos!
Porteur du Thryse, 
Je t'appelle!
Prends-moi! possède-moi,
Dieu fort!...
Anéantis moi!
Je me livre! 
Je suis ivre!
Et veux boire jusqu'à la mort!

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 less than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
