Quoique nous le voyions fleurir

Emile Verhaeren 1855 (Sint-Amands) – 1916 (Rouen)



Quoique nous le voyions fleurir devant nos yeux
Ce jardin clair où nous passons silencieux,
C'est plus encor en nous que se féconde
Le plus candide et doux jardin du monde.

Car nous vivons toutes les fleurs,
Toutes les herbes, toutes les palmes
En nos rires et en nos pleurs
De bonheur pur et calme.

Car nous vivons toute la joie
Dardée en cris de fête et de printemps,
En nos aveux où se côtoient
Les mots fervents et exaltants.

Oh! dis, c'est bien en nous que se féconde
Le plus joyeux et doux jardin du monde.
