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.

A Baby Elephant

Right now my love for you is a baby elephant / Born in Berlin or in Paris, / And treading with its cushioned feet / Around the zoo director's house. / / Do not offer it French pastries, / Do not offer it cabbage heads, / It can eat only sections of tangerines, / Or lumps of sugar an...


In the old days, when God cast down / His gaze upon the just created earth, / Words stopped the sun, / Words tore down whole towns. / / The terror-striken stars / huddled round the moon / When words, like pink flaming tongues / Floated down through air. / / The lower levels of ...

On that faraway star, upon Venus...

On that faraway star, upon Venus, / Where the Sun burns golden and brightly. / And on Venus, ah... upon Venus, / The blue leaves of trees they waft lightly. / / And loudly the waters they sing / The river, the fountain, the fall / Their noon song of freedom they ring / That lights u...

A dream

I woke up and moaned with a shudder, / My nightmare haunts me again: / You were still in love with another, / And he caused you anguish and pain. / / I escaped my house in the darkness - / Thus a killer runs from a block, / Watched and mocked by shadowy lanterns - / Hungry wild beas...

You will recall me

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...
