Limaçon (2012)

C'est un escargot énorme

Qui descend de la montagne

Et le ruisseau l'accompagne

De sa bave blanche

Très vieux, il n'a plus qu'une corne

C'est son court clocher carré

It is a giant snail

Who comes down the mountain

And is followed by the stream

Of its white slime

So very old, it has no more than a single horn

Short and square like a bell tower.

 

René Rouquier
