“Noir est le visage du galibot

à la sortie de la fosse.

Ses yeux brillent comme des billes

parmi le charbon qui recouvre sa peau.

Comme des ombres,

ces enfants recouverts de suie,

venus de nul part et d’ici

avec leur courage comme seul bagage,

supportent fièrement leur labeur.

Italiens, polonais, algériens, espagnols…

Tous sont frères au fond de la mine,

et ils en sortent tous noir.

Sur les lèvres un sourire timide,

le dos plié.”

“Black is the face of the galibot

at the exit of the pit.

His eyes shine like marbles

among the charcoal that covers his skin.

Like shadows,

these children covered with soot,

from nowhere and here

with their courage as the only luggage,

proudly support their work.

Italian, Polish, Algerian, Spanish …

All are brothers inside the pit,

and they come out all black.

On the lips, a shy smile,

bended back”
