Treasure Island

Jean Francois Casimir Delavigne

(4 April 1793 – 11 December 1843 / Le Havre)

La Brigantine


La brigantine
Qui va tourner
Roule et s’incline
Pour m’entraîner.
Ô Vierge Marie,
Pour moi priez Dieu !
Adieu, patrie !
Provence, adieu !
Mon pauvre père
Verra souvent
Pâlir ma mère
Au bruit du vent.
Ô Vierge Marie,
Pour moi priez Dieu !
Adieu, patrie !
Mon père, adieu !
La vieille Hélène
Se confîra
Dans sa neuvaine,
Et dormira.
Ô Vierge Marie,
Pour moi priez Dieu !
Adieu, patrie !
Hélène, adieu !
Ma sœur se lève,
Et dit déjà :
« J’ai fait un rêve ;
Il reviendra. »
Ô Vierge Marie,
Pour moi priez Dieu
Adieu, patrie !
Ma sœur, adieu !
De mon Isaure
Le mouchoir blanc
S’agite encore
En m’appelant.
Ô Vierge Marie,
Pour moi priez Dieu !
Adieu, patrie !
Isaure, adieu !
Brise ennemie,
Pourquoi souffler,
Quand mon amie
Veut me parler ?
Ô Vierge Marie,
Pour moi priez Dieu !
Adieu, patrie !
Bonheur, adieu !

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
