A Jeanne II

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



Ces lieux sont purs ; tu les complètes.
Ce bois, loin des sentiers battus,
Semble avoir fait des violettes,
Jeanne, avec toutes tes vertus.

L'aurore ressemble à ton âge ;
Jeanne, il existe sous les cieux
On ne sait quel doux voisinage
Des bons coeurs avec les beaux lieux.

Tout ce vallon est une fête
Qui t'offre son humble bonheur ;
C'est un nimbe autour de ta tête ;
C'est un éden en ton honneur.

Tout ce qui t'approche désire
Se faire regarder par toi,
Sachant que ta chanson, ton rire,
Et ton front, sont de bonne foi.

Ô Jeanne, ta douceur est telle
Qu'en errant dans ces bois bénis,
Elle fait dresser devant elle
Les petites têtes des nids.

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…
