Treasure Island

François Coppée

(26 January 1842 – 23 May 1908 / Paris)

Étoiles filantes


Dans les nuits d'automne, errant par la ville,
Je regarde au ciel avec mon désir,
Car si, dans le temps qu'une étoile file,
On forme un souhait, il doit s'accomplir.


Enfant, mes souhaits sont toujours les mêmes :
Quand un astre tombe, alors, plein d'émoi,
Je fais de grands voeux afin que tu m'aimes
Et qu'en ton exil tu penses à moi.


A cette chimère, hélas ! je veux croire,
N'ayant que cela pour me consoler.
Mais voici l'hiver, la nuit devient noire,
Et je ne vois plus d'étoiles filer.
