Lé P`tit Êléphant

Слонёнок

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.

Clever Devil

My old best friend, my faithful Devil, / Sang me a ditty of his own: / "All night a sailor held sea level, / But at the dawn he sank like stone. / / The waves like walls stood all around, / They fell then raised white crests again, / His great love passed, before he drowned, / ...

A Book Reader

Book reader, I too wanted to locate / My calm bliss in humility of conscience, / And I adored them, those strange paths, innate, / Where there's no hope and there is no remembrance. / / To ever swim along the brooks of lines, / To enter straits of chapters with impatience, / And to ob...

The Giraffe

Today, I see your glance is especially sad, / Your hands - especially thin, holding your knees. / Listen: far, far away, on Lake Chad, / Roams an exquisite giraffe. / / A slender, blissful grace is given him, / A magical design adorns his hide, / Which only the moon dares to rival, / ...

Giraffe

Today I can see that your eyes are especially sad, / And the arms, that are hugging your knees, are so gentle, my love. / Just listen, in a faraway land by a lake called the Chad, / Wanders an elegant giraffe. / / His elegant body is shining in afternoon heat. / It's covered with a...

Giraffe

Today, I see, you look especially sad, / your arms embracing your knees and especially thin. / Listen: far, far away round Lake Chad / wanders an elegant giraffe. / He is graceful, shapely and languid, / divine gifts - a magical pattern for his skin / that only the moon dares to compete ...
