Les Ogres de Barback - Pierre Peret - At the Canal's cafe


Original Title: "Au Café du canal"
Beautiful Rosette's at the canal's cafe
On the lime trunc that shaded the dance
you could read under two intertwined hearts
"Here you may bring your kisses"

I, my kisses I had lost them
And I already believed that I had kissed everything
And I didn't know that you came over
and that your new mouth was papered with them
Fortune untill now hadn't smiled on me
Over my craddle the fairies weren't leaning much
And every time I fell on a nettle's square
There was a wasp to sting me in the neck

Though my luck today is here
Under the green arbour of your bent eyelashes
When you looked at me for the first time
My old freedom started to reel
We were alone in the world in this populous dance
And with a single hand I imprisoned your waist

Your breasts were pushing again the pleats of your blue bodice
They almost won the battle
I love the sky because it's in your eyes
I love the bird because he knows your name
I love your laugh and all those curious words
that you come whispering at my jacket's collar

And I see again your hands crossed on your chest
Your clothes thrown on a chair at the bed's feet
Your poor heart was making small sardine's jumps
When I put my head against it
God, you thank god, that's all you!
But my love for you is far more stronger
Could have God slept beside you
a whole night without touching your body.

Beautiful Rosette's at the canal's cafe
On the lime trunc that shaded the dance
you could read under two intertwined hearts
"Here you may bring your kisses"

Original Title: " Faut vivre " Despite the big eyes of the void "It's to better eat you, child" And the silence...
