Text heard on Sample:

C’est l’extase langoureuse,
c’est la fatigue amoureuse,
c’est tous les frissons des bois
parmi l’étreinte des brises,
c’est vers les ramures grises
le chœur des petites voix.

Ô le frêle et frais murmure !
cela gazouille et susurre,
cela ressemble au cri doux
que l’herbe agitée expire...
tu dirais, sous l’eau qui vire,
le roulis sourd des cailloux...

Paul Verlaine
