Les sanglots longsDes violonsDe l’automneBlessent mon coeurD’une langueurMonotone.Tout suffocantEt blême, quandSonne l’heure,Je me souviensDes jours anciensEt je pleureEt je m’en vaisAu vent mauvaisQui m’emporteDeçà, delà,Pareil à laFeuille morte.

Les sanglots longs
Des violons
De l’automne
Blessent mon coeur
D’une langueur
Monotone.

Tout suffocant
Et blême, quand
Sonne l’heure,
Je me souviens
Des jours anciens
Et je pleure

Et je m’en vais
Au vent mauvais
Qui m’emporte
Deçà, delà,
Pareil à la
Feuille morte.

-Verlaine-
