Text by Rene-Francois SULLY PRUDHOMME (1839-1907)

S'asseoir tous deux au bord d'un flot qui passe,
Le voir passer ;

Tous deux, s'il glisse un nuage en l'espace,
Le voir glisser ;

A l'horizon, s'il fume un toit de chaume,
Le voir fumer ;

Aux alentours, si quelque fleur embaume,
S'en embaumer ;

Si quelque fruit, o� les abeilles go�tent,
Tente, y go�ter ;

Si quelque oiseau, dans les bois qui l'�coutent,
Chante, �couter...

Entendre au pied du saule o� l'eau murmure
L'eau murmurer ;

Ne pas sentir, tant que ce reve dure,
Le temps durer ;

Mais n'apportant de passion profonde
Qu'� s'adorer ;

Sans nul souci des querelles du monde,
Les ignorer ;

Et seuls, heureux devant tout ce qui lasse,
Sans se lasser,

Sentir l'amour, devant tout ce qui passe,
Ne point passer !
