Quant tu dors, calme et pure,
dans l'ombre, sous mes yeux,
Ton haleine murmure
des mots harmonieux;
Ton beau corps se révèle
sans voile et sans atours…
Dormez, ma belle,
dormez toujours!

English.png English translation

When you sleep, calm and pure,
In the shadow, beneath my gaze,
Your breathing murmurs
Harmonious words;
Your lovely body is revealed
Without veil or finery…
Sleep, my beauty,
Sleep forever!
