BAMBOU Bambuseae

Bambou parle de jonques possibles
Et de pagodes aux tuiles d’émail,
De servantes chinoises dociles
Coiffées d’étranges dragons de corail.

(English) BAMBOO Bambuseae

Bamboo speaks to us of chinese junks,
Of pagodas topped with enameles tiles,
Docile chinese servants
Hair held high by strange coral dragons.
