le cabri

The word for today is le cabri, meaning a young goat, a kid.

This word is found in St. Georges Brassens' amazing song, "Il suffit de passer le pont."

L'herbe est douce à Pâques fleuries
Jetons mes sabots, tes galoches
Et, légers comme des cabris
Courons après les sons de cloches

The grass is soft at Easter in full bloom. Let's toss off my rough clogs and your leather ones, and, light-footed as young goats, run after the sound of the bells.

Beautiful.
