Le Martin-pêcheur

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



Le miroitement des eaux vives
Attire le Martin-Pêcheur
Qui fend la brume et la blancheur
Mieux que les merles et les grives.

Entre les grands saules des rives,
Au bord du ruisseau rabâcheur,
Le miroitement des eaux vives
Attire le Martin-Pêcheur,

Et sous les ramures plaintives,
Dans le soleil, dans la fraîcheur,
Il file, ce joli chercheur,
Rasant de ses lueurs furtives
Le miroitement des eaux vives.
