Canço del teuladí

Language: Catalan (Català)

Joyos cassador, passa;
Busca mes brava cassa
I deixam quiet a mí,
Jo soch l'amich de casa,
Jo soch lo teuladí.

Jo no tinch la ploma de la cadernera
Que d'or i de grana tiny la primavera;
No tinch la veu dolça que te 'l rossinyol;
Ni de l'oroneta joliva i lleugera
Les ales que creuen la mar d'un sol vol.
De parda estamenya, sens flors, sense llistes,
Vestit pobre duch;
Mes penes i glories, alegres o tristes,
Les cante com puch.

Les aligues niuen damunt de la roca
Del gorch qu'entre timbes aizampla la boca;
En branca fullosa lo viu passarell;
La tórtora en l'arbre que ja obrí la soca,
La gralla en els runes d'enfonsat castell.
Jo al home confie la meua niuada,
I pobre i panruch,
Entre la familia, baix de la teulada,
M'ampare com puch.

Les fruits del bosch busca la torcac; la griva,
Janglots entre'ls pampols; l'estornell, la oliva;
A serps verinoses, los vistós flamench;
La llántia del temple, la óvila furtiva,
I anyells l'aborrívol condor famolench.
Jo visc de l'almoyna que al humil mai falla;
I em sent benastruch;
Lo grá qu'en les eres se perd entre palla,
Replegue com puch.
