Pancarte pour une porte d'entrée

Le Serpent

Le contour intrigué d’un jardin
comme vous et moi belles pivoines fermant les yeux
partout tel rossignol serpente

The snake

The mystified outline of a garden like you and me beautiful bullfinches with closed eyes like a ubiquitous snaking nightingale


Marcelle Germaine Tailleferre was a French composer and the only female member of the group of composers known as Les Six.
