Jacques Prevert

(4 February 1900 – 11 April 1977 / Neuilly-sur-Seine)

Chanson de l'oiseleur


L'oiseau qui vole si doucement
L'oiseau rouge et tiède comme le sang
L'oiseau si tendre l'oiseau moqueur
L'oiseau qui soudain prend peur
L'oiseau qui soudain se cogne
L'oiseau qui voudrait s'enfuir
L'oiseau seul et affolé
L'oiseau qui voudrait vivre
L'oiseau qui voudrait chanter
L'oiseau qui voudrait crier
L'oiseau rouge et tiède comme le sang
L'oiseau qui vole si doucement
C'est ton coeur jolie enfant
Ton coeur qui bat de l'aile si tristement
Contre ton sein si dur si blanc
