La Pomme

de Pierre GAMARRA

Une pomme rubiconde Se pavanait, proclamant Qu’elle était le plus beau de tous les fruits du monde,

Le plus tendre, le plus charmant, Le plus sucré, le plus suave, Ni la mangue, ni l’agave, Le melon délicieux, Ni l’ananas, ni l’orange, Aucun des fruits que l’on mange

Sous l’un ou l’autre des cieux, Ni la rouge sapotille, La fraise, ni la myrtille N’avait sa chair exquise et sa vive couleur. On ne pourrait jamais lui trouver une soeur. La brise répandait alentour son arôme

Et sa pourpre éclatait sur le feuillage vert. - "Oui, c’est vrai, c’est bien vrai!" dit un tout petit vers Blotti dans le creux de la pomme.

Pierre GAMARRA (1919 - 2009) "La Mandarine et le Mandarin" (1974)

... or Chinese ! (because in French, when we don't understand a single word, we say it sounds like Chinese !). I understand your remark meant that precisely but you didn't want to hurt the Chinese people for fear of their reaction... Am I right ?

We actually say Greek. 'It's all Greek to me'. But that may be just a Melbourne saying as Melbourne is the city with the second highest Greek speaking population in the world (2nd to Athens of course)!
