The Lied, Art Song, and Choral Texts Archive

Lisez bien les vieux dictionnaires

Language: French

Lisez bien les vieux dictionnaires
Pleins de mots perdus
Signifiant des anciens mondes
Corsés d'idées disparues
Et dont l'arôme de poussière
Reste longtemps dans les narines
Signifiant des vieux professeurs
Qui font la chronique des anciens mondes
D'un vocabulaire corsé de mots perdus
Avec l'aide du vieux dictionnaire.
L'atmosphère est corsé d'un arôme de poussière
Comme un vocabulaire perdu
Qu'on trouve dans les vieux dictionnaires
Que vous devez bien lire.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
