Intermediate #40 French poetry Gautier

distrait, distraite # concentré, concentrée

laisser choir / laisser tomber

un éventail

un tapis

argenté, argentée

doré, dorée

le flot, les flots

un gouffre

amer, amère

distracted # concentrated, focused

to let go

a fan

a carpet

silver

golden

a wave, waves

a deep hole

bitter

Au bord de la mer de Théophile Gautier (1811-1872)

La lune de ses mains distraites

A laissé choir, du haut de l’air,

Son grand éventail à paillettes

Sur le bleu tapis de la mer.

Pour le ravoir elle se penche

Et tend son beau bras argenté ;

Mais l’éventail fuit sa main blanche,

Par le flot qui passe emporté.

Au gouffre amer pour te le rendre,

Lune, j’irais bien me jeter,

Si tu voulais du ciel descendre,

Au ciel si je pouvais monter !
