Un soir

Guillaume Apollinaire 1880 (Rome) – 1918 (Paris)

Un aigle descendit de ce ciel blanc d'archanges
  Et vous soutenez-moi
  Laisserez-vous trembler longtemps toutes ces lampes
  Priez priez pour moi

  La ville est métallique et c'est la seule étoile
  Noyée dans tes yeux bleus
  Quand les tramways roulaient jaillissaient des feux pâles
  Sur des oiseaux galeux

  Et tout ce qui tremblait dans tes yeux de mes songes
  Qu'un seul homme buvait
  Sous les feux de gaz roux comme la fausse oronge
  Ô vêtue ton bras se lovait

  Vois l'histrion tire la langue aux attentives
  Un fantôme s'est suicidé
  L'apôtre au figuier pend et lentement salive
  Jouons donc cet amour aux dés

  Des cloches aux sons clairs annonçaient ta naissance
  Vois
  Les chemins son fleuris et les palmes s'avancent
  Vers toi
