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 !
