Femme et Chatte Poem by Paul Verlaine


Elle jouait avec sa chatte,
Et c’était merveille de voir
La main blanche et la blanche patte
S’ébattre dans l’ombre du soir.

Elle cachait- la scélérate! —
Sous ses mitaines de fil noir
Ses meurtriers ongles d’agate,
Coupants et clairs comme un rasoir.

L’autre aussi faisait la sucrée
Et rentrait ses griffes acérées.
Mais le diable n’y perdait rien...

Et dans le boudoir ou, sonore,
Tintait son rire aérien,
Brillait quatre points de phosphore
