La biche

Maurice Rollinat 1846 (Châteauroux) – 1903 (Ivry-sur-Seine)



La biche brame au clair de lune
Et pleure à se fondre les yeux :
Son petit faon délicieux
A disparu dans la nuit brune.

Pour raconter son infortune
A la forêt de ses aïeux,
La biche brame au clair de lune
Et pleure à se fondre les yeux.

Mais aucune réponse, aucune,
A ses longs appels anxieux !
Et le cou tendu vers les cieux,
Folle d'amour et de rancune,
La biche brame au clair de lune.
