You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Dans le parc

Language: French (Français)

Dans le parc triste et qui s'endeuille 
on peut encore apercevoir 
au bout léger d'un rameau noir 
frissonner la dernière feuille ! 

Est-ce vous qui venez vers moi ?... 
Le vieil amour va-t-il renaître ? 
Mais, hélas ! Sans me reconnaître, 
vous passez, rapide... Pourquoi ? 

Il vente, il pleut... on marche vite... 
Sans même le voir on évite 
le vieux banc où nul ne s'assied, 

Et comme une aile qui se brise 
la feuille morte sous la bise, 
en tournoyant tombe à vos pieds !

Confirmed with Louis Payen, Le Collier des Heures, Paris, Mercure de France, MCMXIII, pages 41-42.
