Départ de Pierrot

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Un rayon de lune est la rame,
Un blanc nénuphar, la chaloupe ;
Il regagne, la brise en poupe,
Sur un fleuve pâle, Bergame.

Le flot chante une humide gamme
Sous la nacelle qui le coupe.
Un rayon de lune est la rame,
Un blanc nénuphar, la chaloupe.

Le neigeux roi du mimodrame
Redresse fièrement sa houppe ;
Comme du punch dans une coupe,
Le vague horizon vert s'enflamme.
- Un rayon de lune est la rame.
