Soulêve ta paupière closeQu"effleure un songe virginal ;Je suis le spectre d"une roseQue tu portais hier au bal.Tu me pris encore emperléeDes pleurs d"argent de l"arrosoir,Et, parmi la fête étoilée,Tu me promenas tout le soir.Ô toi qui de ma mort fus cause,Sans que tu puisses le chasser,1 mon spectre roseÀ ton chevet viendra danser :Mais ne crains rien, je ne réclameNi messe ni De Profundis ;Ce léger parfum est mon âme,Et j"arrive du du paradis.Mon destin fut digne d"envie ;2 si beau,Plus d"un aurait donné sa vie,3 tombeau,Et sur l"albâtre où je reposeUn poète, avec un baiser,Écrivit : Ci-gît une roseQue tous les rois vont jalouser.
