Le grillon des foyers

Language: French (Fran├žais)

En hiver,
Quand la bûche chante
Dans la cheminée,
Le petit grillon des foyers
Vient écouter la chanson légère
Et si touchante
Que dit le bois qui meurt.
A son tour, le grillon entonne
Son petit couplet monotone.
Puis à l'unisson,
Tandis que la flamme s'irise
La bûche d'or et le noir grillon
Un petit duo sans tapage,
Un petit duo de regrets
Où il y a des odeurs de feuillages
Et le souvenir de la forêt.
