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 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
