Je T’Indique Le Fruit

Andre Marie de Chenier 1762 (Constantinople) – 1794 (Paris)



Je t'indique le fruit qui m'a rendu malade;
Je te crie en quel lieu, sous la route, est caché
Un abîme, où déjà mes pas ont trébuché.
D'un mutuel amour combien doux est l'empire!
Heureux, et plus heureux que je ne saurais dire,
Deux coeurs qui ne font qu'un, dont la vie et l'amour
N'auront, dans un long temps, qu'un même dernier jour!
Mais bien peu, qu'ont séduits de si douces chimères,
Out fui le repentir et les larmes amères.
O poètes amants! conseillers dangereux,
Qui vantez la douceur des tourments amoureux,
Votre miel déguisait de funestes breuvages;
Sur les rochers d'Eubée, entourés de naufrages,
Allumant dans la nuit d'infidèles flambeaux,
Vous avez égaré mes crédules vaisseaux.
Mais que dis-je? vos vers sont tout trempés de larmes.

Andre Marie de Chenier

André Marie Chénier was a French poet of Greek and Franco-Levantine origin, associated with the events of the French Revolution of which he was a victim. His sensual, emotive poetry marks him as one of the precursors of the Romantic movement. His career was brought to an abrupt end when he was guillotined for supposed "crimes against the state", just three days before the end of the Reign of Terror. Chénier's life has been the subject of Umberto Giordano's opera Andrea Chénier and other works of art. more…
