Victor Marie Hugo

(26 February 1802 – 22 May 1885 / Besancon / France)

A des âmes envolées


Ces âmes que tu rappelles,
Mon coeur, ne reviennent pas.
Pourquoi donc s'obstinent-elles,
Hélas ! à rester là-bas ?

Dans les sphères éclatantes,
Dans l'azur et les rayons,
Sont-elles donc plus contentes
Qu'avec nous qui les aimions ?

Nous avions sous les tonnelles
Une maison près Saint-Leu.
Comme les fleurs étaient belles !
Comme le ciel était bleu !

Parmi les feuilles tombées,
Nous courions au bois vermeil ;
Nous cherchions des scarabées
Sur les vieux murs au soleil ;

On riait de ce bon rire
Qu'Éden jadis entendit,
Ayant toujours à se dire
Ce qu'on s'était déjà dit ;

Je contais la Mère l'Oie ;
On était heureux, Dieu sait !
On poussait des cris de joie
Pour un oiseau qui passait.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
