Lé P`tit Êléphant


M'n amour pouor té est un p'tit êléphant
tchi fut né à Bèrlîn ou à Paris
et tchi, en chabots d'laine, va pilvâtchant
par siez la grôsse tête dé sa mênag'gie.

Né l'souongne pon atout des p'tits pains Français;
né l'souongne janmais nitout d'copieaux d'caboche -
ch'est eune quartelle d'orange, chein tchi lî pliaît:
un lopîn d'chucre ou tchique aut' chose tch'est douoche.

Né plieuthe pon, ma chiéthe, qu'il est encagi
et qu'lé monde l'abafouent épis l'poujôlent,
qu'sa trompe auve des cigares veint feunmâtchie,
qué v'là tchi fait rithe à hahas les douôles.

N'crai pon, ma douoche, qu'un jour i' s'dêfiqu'tha,
happ'tha la pathe d'un affit d'folletéthie,
et qu'partoute la ville f'tha un pataflias
et coumme eune beusse êmagliétha l'publyi.

Nan-dgia! Raîque rêve à li à sinne dé jeu
en plieunmasses d'autruche, plis d'souaie et médales,
coumme y'a des milles ans chu grand Mèrveilleux
tch'apportit, à m'nichi Rome, Hannibal.

You will recall me - likely, more than once, / And you'll recall my world, both strange and dreamy, / The funny world where songs and fires dance, / And yet - the only one that's not deceiving. / / It could have been your chosen world as well. / Perhaps it was too much for you, too litt...

The Cross

Card after card lied to me, lied and lied, / and even wine no longer helped. / Cold March stars hung pale, / anxious, outside the window. / / Coldly mad, in crazy passion, / I felt the game was dream. / "I bet everything in the bank, all of it!" I shouted. / And I lost. / / I l...


They have crowded around me - why? - like thieves / in the dark, in the quiet suburban dark. / Like sinister hawks, like sullen hawks, / they have come for some cruel vengeance. / / Hope left. Dream ran. / Anxiety pried open my eyes / and as though on a ghostly slate / I read my wor...

A Ballad

Lucifer my friend gave me five horses / and one gold ruby ring, / for me to go down, down into the ground, / for me to see the sky's young face. / / My horses beat their hooves, snorted, begged / to gallop like birds all over the earth, / and I believed the sun's light burned for me, ...

The Turkey

In the morning of my unsure memory / I recall a many-coloured meadow, / where ruled a haughty / turkey, adored by me. / / He was malicious and free, / his beak crimson as fire / and he was sharply scornful / of my four years. / / Neither chocolate, nor caramels, / nor pineapp...

The palm groves and the aloe thickets…

The palm groves and the aloe thickets, / a silvery, matt stream, / the sky is infinitely blue, / the sky is gold from rays. / / What more do you want, heart? / Is happiness a fable or a lie? / Why do you give yourself up submissively / to another faith temptations? / / Do you w...
