Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CHARLOTTE
(ne se contraignant plus)
Va! laisse couler mes larmes
(affectueusement)
elles font du bien, ma chérie!
Les larmes qu'on ne pleure pas,
dans notre âme retombent toutes,
et de leurs patientes gouttes
Martèlent le coeur triste et las!
Sa résistance enfin s'épuise; le coeur se creuse...
et s'affaiblit: il est trop grand, rien ne l'emplit;
et trop fragile, tout le brise! Tout le brise!

English Libretto or Translation:

CHARLOTTE
(no longer binding)
Go!let my tears flow
(affectionately)
they do good, darling!
The tears we do not cry,
in our souls all fall,
and with their patient drops
Hammer the sad and weary heart!
His resistance is finally exhausted; the heart digs ...
and weakens: it is too big, nothing fills it;
and too fragile, all the breeze! All the breeze!
