Dans le buisson de mimosas

Language: French (Français)

Dans le buisson de mimosa
qu’est-ce qui n’y a?
y a le lézard qui n’osa
mettre ses yeux dans les oseilles
la fleur dite le bouton d’or
et le plant nommé sensitive
qui me dit-on s’ouvre à l’aurore
et prend la forme d’une olive
Là y a aussi Hortense
y a les boules azurées
du céleste hortensia
et la troupe argentée
d’herbes folles de rire
Dans le buisson de mimosa
qu’est-ce qui n’y a
le fils de la mercière
et la fille du bougnat.
