The little house of verses

It is made of paper and little,

but everything fits there

what one needs

in its seven rooms

with its seven little windows:

In one there are violet dreams

there are in the other, smiles;

in the third, a giant

well drawn with chalk

that keeps beautiful words

under the shirt ...

In the fourth room

a chest with little music;

in the fifth, two mirrors

to see beautiful things ...

(one can see the birds

and on the other, stars ...).

In the sixth room

covers walls and floor,

a tulip garden

with velvet grass

and spiral staircase

to go dancing to heaven.

In the seventh there are two moons

at the bottom of a trunk:

one smells like warm sugar,

the other to blue perfume ...

one wears gold buckles,

the other tulle bows.

Oh! What a beautiful house,

of paper and so little!

but ... have you seen?

what one needs

in its seven rooms

with its seven little windows.
