Mareye

Guillaume Apollinaire 1880 (Rome) – 1918 (Paris)

Mareye était très douce étourdie et charmante
Moi je l'aimais d'Amour m'aimait-elle, qui sait?
Je revois parfois à la lueur tremblotante
Des lointains souvenirs cet Amour trépassé.

Sur ma bouche je sens celle de mon amante
Je sens ses petites mains sur mon front glacé
Ses mains dont doucement elle me caressait
Ses rares mains de sainte pâle ou bien d'infante

Mon amante d'antant dans quels bras t'endors-tu
Pendant l'hiver saison d'amour où les vents pleurent
Où les amants ont froid où les passants se meurent

Sous les tristes sapins meurent en écoutant
Les elfes rire au vent et corner aux rafales?
Songes-tu quelquefois quand les nuits sont bien pâles
Que telles nos amours sont mortes les étoiles?
