La pointe de l'eau



La fontaine ramassait ses rameaux
L'eau, reconstruite, coulait sous l'arche vert
Embaumant tendrement, en perles de roseaux
Le destin criant du désert

Le roc était méditation
Je connaissais l'exil

Je pleurais seulement, empereur
La pointe de l'eau

Benjamin des cimes
Je jetais ma plume
Dans le ruisseau
