XXX - C'est vrai, j'aime Paris…


C'est vrai, j'aime Paris d'une amitié malsaine;
J'ai partout le regret des vieux bords de la Seine
Devant la vaste mer, devant les pics neigeux,
Je rêve d'un faubourg plein d'enfants et de jeux.
D'un coteau tout pelé d'où ma Muse s'applique
A noter les tons fins d'un ciel mélancolique,
D'un bout de Bièvre, avec quelques chants oubliés,
Où l'on tend une corde aux troncs des peupliers,
Pour y faire sécher la toile et la flanelle,
Ou d'un coin pour pêcher dans l'île de Grenelle.
