Le Cimetière

Le cimetière aux violettes
Embaume tous les alentours.
Les lézards y font mille tours
Au parfum de ses cassolettes.

Que de libellules follettes
Y sont vaines de leurs atours !
Le cimetière aux violettes
Embaume tous les alentours.

Et, champ de morts, nid de squelettes
Qui trompe le flair des vautours,
Il dort au bas des vieilles tours,
Entre ses roches maigrelettes,
Le cimetière aux violettes.
