Poems Carnaval à l’école Arlequin bariolé De losanges et de carrés, De triangles rouges Qui sans cesse bougent. Habillé tout en blanc Pierrot rêve nez au vent : Il pense à sa belle Assis auprès d’elle. Fée, pirate et mariée Se sont rencontrés ; Sourit la princesse En ses longues tresses. Petits pieds dégourdis, La musique les convie A entrer dans la danse Pour qu’ils se fiancent. Jacques Charpentreau La chauve-souris A mi-Carême, en Carnaval, On met un masque de velours. Où va le masque après le bal ? Il vole à la tombée du jour. Oiseau de poils, oiseau sans plumes, Il sort quand l’étoile s’allume De son repaire de décombres : Chauve-souris, masque de l’ombre. Robert Desnos (The bat A mid-Lent Carnival in, It puts a velvet mask. Where is the mask after the ball? It flies at dusk. Bird hair, bird without feathers He goes out when the star lights From his lair of rubble: Bats, the shadow mask. Robert Desnos) (Carnaval at school Multicolored Harlequin Diamond and square Red triangles Who constantly moving. Dressed all in white Pierrot dreams nose to the wind: He thinks of his beautiful Seated beside her. Fairy, pirate and married Met; Smiles Princess In her long braids. Small foot stretch, The music invites To enter the dance If they were engaged. Jacques Charpentreau
