Ecrit sur le tombeau

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



d'un petit enfant au bord de la mer

Vieux lierre, frais gazon, herbe, roseaux, corolles ;
Eglise où l'esprit voit le Dieu qu'il rêve ailleurs ;
Mouches qui murmurez d'ineffables paroles
À l'oreille du pâtre assoupi dans les fleurs ;

Vents, flots, hymne orageux, choeur sans fin, voix sans nombre ;
Bois qui faites songer le passant sérieux ;
Fruits qui tombez de l'arbre impénétrable et sombre,
Etoiles qui tombez du ciel mystérieux ;

Oiseaux aux cris joyeux, vague aux plaintes profondes ;
Froid lézard des vieux murs dans les pierres tapi ;
Plaines qui répandez vos souffles sur les ondes ;
Mer où la perle éclôt, terregerme l'épi ;

Nature d'où tout sort, nature où tout retombe,
Feuilles, nids, doux rameaux que l'air n'ose effleurer,
Ne faites pas de bruit autour de cette tombe ;
Laissez l'enfant dormir et la mère pleurer !

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…
