Quant a toi, femme nee en des siecles malins Pour la mechancete des antres sibyllins, Qui parles d'un mortel! selon qui, des calices De mes robes, arome aux farouches delices, Sortirait Ie frisson blanc de rna nudite, Prophetise que si Ie tie de azur d' ete, 33 Before which instinctively woman goes bare, Sees me in my modesty trembling like a star, I die! Vers lui nativement la femme se devoile, Me voit dans rna pudeur grelottante d' etoile, Je meurs! I love the horror of virginity, The dread my tresses give me when I lie Retired at night, reptilian on my couch, My useless flesh inviolate to the touch, Feeling cold sparks from your lucidity, You who die, you who burn with chastity, White night of icicles and cruel snow!
