A dona Rosita Rosa

Victor Marie Hugo 1802 (Besançon) – 1885 (Paris)



I
Ce petit bonhomme bleu
Qu'un souffle apporte et remporte,
Qui, dès que tu dors un peu,
Gratte de l'ongle à ta porte,

C'est mon rêve. Plein d'effroi,
Jusqu'à ton seuil il se glisse.
Il voudrait entrer chez toi
En qualité de caprice.

Si tu désires avoir
Un caprice aimable, leste,
Et prenant un air céleste
Sous les étoiles du soir,

Mon rêve, ô belle des belles,
Te convient ; arrangeons-nous.
Il a ton nom sur ses ailes
Et mon nom sur ses genoux.

Il est doux, gai, point morose,
Tendre, frais, d'azur baigné.
Quant à son ongle, il est rose,
Et j'en suis égratigné.

II

Prends-le donc à ton service.
C'est un pauvre rêve fou ;
Mais pauvreté n'est pas vice.
Nul coeur ne ferme au verrou ;

Ton coeur, pas plus que mon âme,
N'est clos et barricadé.
Ouvre donc, ouvrez, madame,
A mon doux songe évadé.

Les heures pour moi sont lentes,
Car je souffre éperdument ;
Il vient sur ton front charmant
Poser ses ailes tremblantes.

T'obéir sera son voeu ;
Il dorlotera ton âme ;
Il fera chez toi du feu,
Et, s'il le peut, de la flamme.

Il fera ce qui te plaît ;
Prompt à voir tes désirs naître ;
Belle, il sera ton valet,
Jusqu'à ce qu'il soit ton maître.

Victor Marie Hugo

Victor Marie Hugo was a French poet, novelist, and dramatist of the Romantic movement. He is considered one of the greatest and best known French writers. In France, Hugo's literary fame comes first from his poetry but also rests upon his novels and his dramatic achievements. Among many volumes of poetry, Les Contemplations and La Légende des siècles stand particularly high in critical esteem. Outside France, his best-known works are the novels Les Misérables, 1862, and Notre-Dame de Paris, 1831. Though a committed royalist when he was young, Hugo's views changed as the decades passed; he became a passionate supporter of republicanism, and his work touches upon most of the political and social issues and artistic trends of his time. He was buried in the Panthéon. more…
