Vous m'avez dit, tel soir

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

Vous m'avez dit, tel soir, des paroles si belles
Que sans doute les fleurs, qui se penchaient vers nous,
Soudain nous ont aimés et que l'une d'entre elles,
Pour nous toucher tous deux, tomba sur nos genoux.

Vous me parliez des temps prochains où nos années,
Comme des fruits trop mûrs, se laisseraient cueillir ;
Comment éclaterait le glas des destinées,
Comment on s'aimerait, en se sentant vieillir.

Votre voix m'enlaçait comme une chère étreinte,
Et votre coeur brûlait si tranquillement beau
Qu'en ce moment, j'aurais pu voir s'ouvrir sans crainte
Les tortueux chemins qui vont vers le tombeau.
