Le jardin du ciel

Language: French (Français)

Un souffle d'ombre teint les roses du talus
Et les lys du parterre
Tout le feuillage est noir au jardin solitaire
Où les fleurs ne sont plus.
Mais la nuit orne d'or son dôme et ses pilastres
Et je songe, incertain
Si le ciel n'a pas pris les fleurs de mon jardin
Pour en faire ses astres.
