Le colibri

Language: French (Français)

Quand du zéphyr
l’haleine est chaude,
rubis, saphir,
verte émeraude,
le colibri
dans le calice
des fleurs se glisse,
c’est son abri.

Où donc est-il,
cet oiseau frêle?
Pas de babil
qui le révèle.
Au moindre bruit
on le découvre,
la fleur s’entr’ouvre,
l’oiseau s’enfuit.
