Bonne fête Papa – Today’s French

Bonne Fete Papa

Écoutons ce joli poème de Maurice Carême.

Let’s listen to this beautiful poem by Maurice Carême.

Translate the sentences from one column to another. From French to English (la version) is easier, from English to French (la thèse) a bit more challenging.

Pour mon père — de Maurice Carême

Mon père aimé, mon père à moi,

Toi qui me fais bondir

Sur tes genoux

Comme un chamois.

Que pourrais-je te dire

Que tu ne sais déjà ?

Il fait si doux

Quand ton sourire

Éclaire tout sous notre toit.

Je me sens fort, je me sens roi,

Quand je marche à côté de toi.

For my father — Maurice Carême’s poem

My dear father, my father mine,

You who make me jump

On your lap

Like a dear.

What could I tell you

That you don’t already know?

It’s so nice

When your smile

Lightens up everything under our roof.

I feel strong, I feel like I’m the king

When I walk besides you.

 

Happy father’s day! Bonne fête Papa !
