L’Unique sonnet de treize vers et pourquoi

Les mots nouveaux me donnent de la tablature1,
Ils ne figurent pas au Larousse illustré
Et bien souvent je suis quelque peu étonné
Par ceux-ci, dont l’aspect semble contre nature :
 
Arnalducien, bensilloscope, bergissime,
Blavièrement, braffortomane, duchater,
Lattissoir, lescurophage, queneautiser,
Quevaloïde, schmidtineux, à quoi ça rime ?
 
Mais il est parmi tous un mot imprononçable,
Sous un parler rugueux son sens est délectable,
C’est le mot : oulichnblkrtssfrllnns.
 
J’eus tort de faire appel à lui pour un sonnet
Car je ne trouve pas de rime à frllnns.
 
  • 1. « donner de la tablature » : locution vieillie, causer de l’embarras, donner du mal.

The only thirteen verses sonnet and the reason thereof

All these new words, they give me the run-around.
In dictionaries1 they are nowhere to be found
And I often find myself staring in wonder
at those, which seem to defy natural order:
 
Beowulfrid, benzinoscope, extralongshore,
chattycacious, loudbraymaniac, tomcatize,
spinotron, cheesophage, roalddahlize,
whatsworthoid, taylorous, what is all that for?
 
But among them is a word impronounceable.
Under a rough sound, its meanig delectable,
it is the word: oulichnblkrtssfrllnns.
 
I was wrong to call upon it for a sonnet
for I can't find a rhyme for frllnns.
 
  • 1. The illustrated Larousse is a popular French dictionary
This translation does not claim to be of any particular value.
Glad if you liked it, sorry if you didn't.
You can reuse it as you please.
Glad if it's for knowledge or understanding, sorry if it's just for money or fame.
