La Toiture en ardoises

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



La vieille toiture en ardoises
Étincelle dès le matin
Sur le coteau qui sent le thym
Et qui plaît aux chèvres narquoises.

Au temps des vipères sournoises,
Et jusqu’après la Saint-Martin,
La vieille toiture en ardoises
Étincelle dès le matin.

Et dans la saison des framboises,
On voit luire au fond du lointain,
Avec l'éclair noir du satin
Et le reflet bleu des turquoises,
La vieille toiture en ardoises.
