b. 22 October 1921
d. 29 October 1981
Last November (2011) I walked with Peter (Peter's Paris) along a small alley,
Impasse Florimont, where Brassens originally sought to hide
while on leave from a German labor camp.
He did not return to the camp and lived here from 1944 to 1966
with the owners Jeanne and Marcel Planche.
As we approached the door of 9, Impasse Florimont,
I took a photo of the fading rose and poignant note.
You see, it was just a few days after the 30th anniversary of Brassen's death.
It speaks of the sadness of the years since his passing to "a paradise of musicians."
Vous me manquez
I miss you
9, Impasse Florimont
Near Rue des Suisses and Rue d'Alésia
