Sweet swift encounter

sprung flowers, time, winter trees -

pen strokes to blue words.


Sang by "Chistophe" (Daniel Bevilacqua) and written by Jean-Michel Jarre, released in 1974, the melancholic song "Les Mots bleus" (meaning "(The) blue Words" or "(The) blue Says" or "(The) blue Notes") phrases an hypothetical encounter between a man - the singer - and a woman. This rendez-vous seems to happen everyday, first in spring season (happiness in April), then in winter (sad). A meeting with no talk - only playing with eye contact.

If I believe a short radio chronicle, the expression "blue words/says/..." refers to school pens used by children and their blue color, plus Southern Seas.

Well, the authors were inspired in part also by one interpretation of "My Funny Valentine" sang by "Chet Baker" (Chesney Henry Baker, Jr), 1937/1952/2017, you can listen one more time :
