Épigramme

Henri de Regnier 1864 (Honfleur) – 1936 (Paris)



Pour que ton rire pur, jeune, tendre et léger,
  S’épanouisse en fleur sonore,
Il faut qu’avril verdisse aux pousses du verger,
  Plus vertes d’aurore en aurore,

Il faut que l’air égal annonce le printemps
  Et que la première hirondelle
Rase d’un vol aigu les roseaux de l’étang
  Qui mire son retour fidèle !

Mais, quoique l’écho rie à ton rire avec toi,
  Goutte à goutte et d’une eau lointaine,
N’entends-tu pas gémir et répondre à ta voix
  La plainte faible des fontaines ?
