Pancarte pour une porte d'entrée

L'Oiseau des Îles

Comme il partait à l’aventure un oiseau des îles
me dit deux ou trois mots dans son langage
avec l’accent le plus bizzare qu’il y ait eu en fait d’amour

Tropical birds

As he set out at random
a tropical bird spoke
two or three words to me
in its own language
in the most bizarre accent
that ever existed in matters of love
