Page 105 - Come to me, come, my soldier, to my arms! You've been too long away from my embraces; But, when I have you fast, and all my own, With broken murmurs, and with amorous sighs, I'll say, you were unkind, and punish you, And mark you red with many an eager kiss.
Page 71 - Asservi maintenant sous la commune loi, Par quel trouble me vois-je emporté loin de moi! Un moment a vaincu mon audace imprudente : Cette âme si superbe est enfin dépendante.
