Paris

Guillaume Apollinaire 1880 (Rome) – 1918 (Paris)

J'ai vu Paris dans l'ombre
  Hypogée où l'on riait trop
  Paris une grande améthyste
  Ces soldats belges en troupe
  Vieilles femmes habillées en Perrette
  Après le pot-au-lait
  L'officier-pilote raconte ses exploits
  J'ai entendu la berloque
  Mais quel sourire celui de celui qui eut sursis d'appel illimité
  Ombre de la statue de Shakespeare sur le Boulevard Haussmann
  Laideur des costumes civils des hommes qui ne sont pas partis
  Les peintres travaillaient
  Mon cœur t'adore
