Hi all! May I ask you if the word "flâme" in the following line of poetry is the same meaning as "flamme?" I cannot find a word spelled this way in the dictionary, but I am imagining it to mean "flame."

"L'aurore qui dans son ame brûle d'une douce flâme, laissant au lit endormi son vieil mari, froid et pâle…"

Thank you!
