It is very unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1927 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Regarde passer nos jours et nos rêves. De vieux complices nous les tournent, comme on regarde les images. Ils séparent l'écran nocturne... Ils s'avancent du pas suspendu de ceux qui nous aiment, quand le mystère tinte du seuil des nuits fiévreuses...
