De la batterie de tir

Guillaume Apollinaire 1880 (Rome) – 1918 (Paris)



Nous sommes ton collier France
Venus des Atlantides ou bien des Négrities
Des Eldorados ou bien des Cimméries
Rivière d'hommes forts et d'obus dont l'orient chatoie
Diamants qui éclosent la nuit
Ô Roses ô France
Nous nous pâmons de volupté
À ton cou penché vers l'Est
Nous sommes l'Arc-en-terre
Signe plus pur que l'Arc-en-Ciel
Signe de nos origines profondes
Étincelles
Ô nous les très belles couleurs
