Romain Bussine (b. 1830- d. Parismarker 1899) was a Frenchmarker poet and voice professor at the Paris Conservatorymarker who lived during the 19th century.

In 1871, together with Camille Saint-Saëns and Henri Duparc, he founded the Société Nationale de Musique as a forum for promoting contemporary French chamber and orchestral music. Later an argument over the performance of foreign works led to Saint-Saëns and Bussine resigning the joint presidency of the Société Nationale in 1886.

Gabriel Fauré set one of his poems as Après un rêve, op. 7. The poem is based on an anonymous Tuscan text which speaks of how we too often long to return to the world of our sweet dreams. Another setting by Fauré of a poem by Bussine is Sérénade Toscane; the poem is a fairly free version of a slightly sardonic Tuscan serenade.
