Ne prenez pas d'arme 'a feu


Ne prenez pas d'arme 'a feu pour aller
Aun bapteme, 'a la premiere piece de theatre
de votre enfant au lyce'e
A une confirmation, a un mariage
Au second mariage de votre ex-epouse
A votre dernier jour au travail
Parce qu'il y a des fortes chances
Que vous le regrettiez bien vite
Et que tous les autres le regrettent aussi
Donc, n'yallez pas avec une arme 'a feu

(trad. par Marie Rivet)

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
