Les Yeux morts

Maurice Rollinat 1846 (Châteauroux) – 1903 (Ivry-sur-Seine)



De ses grands yeux chastes et fous
Il ne reste pas un vestige :
Ces yeux qui donnaient le vertige
Sont allés où nous irons tous.

En vain, ils étaient frais et doux
Comme deux bluets sur leur tige ;
De ses grands yeux chastes et fous
Il ne reste pas un vestige.

Quelquefois, par les minuits roux
Pleins de mystère et de prestige,
La morte autour de moi voltige,
Mais je ne vois plus que les trous
De ses grands yeux chastes et fous !
