L'Amour

L’Amour est un ange malsain
Qui frémit, sanglote et soupire.
Il est plus moelleux qu’un coussin,
Plus subtil que l’air qu’on respire,
Plus provocant qu’un spadassin.

Chacun cède au mauvais dessein
Que vous chuchote et vous inspire
Le Dieu du meurtre et du larcin,
  L’Amour.

Il voltige comme un essaim.
C’est le prestigieux vampire
Qui nous saigne et qui nous aspire ;
Et nul n’arrache de son sein
Ce perfide et cet assassin,
  L’Amour !
