Cyrano, Act 5, Sc. 6
Cyrano de Bergerac (1897)
Kontext: You blessed my life!
Never on me had rested woman's love.
My mother even could not find me fair:
I had no sister; and, when grown a man,
I feared the mistress who would mock at me.
But I have had your friendship — grace to you
A woman's charm has passed across my path.
