Pour Y.B.

Guillaume Apollinaire 1880 (Rome) – 1918 (Paris)



Bien qu'il me vienne en août votre quatrain d'avril
M'a gardé de tout mal et de toute blessure
Votre douceur me suit durant mon aventure
Au long de cet an sombre ainsi que fut l'an mil

Je vous remercierai s'il se peut je l'assure
Quand nous aurons vaincu le Boche lâche et vil
Dont la vertu française a ressenti l'injure.
