Feuillage du cœur

Language: French (Français)

Sous la cloche de cristal bleu
De mes lasses mélancolies,
Mes vagues douleurs abolies
S'immobolisent peu à peu:

Végétations de symboles,
Nénuphars mornes des plaisirs,
Palmes lentes de mes désirs,
Mousses froides, lianes molles.

Seul, un lys érige d'entre eux,
Pâle et rigidement débile,
Son ascension immobile
Sur les feuillages douloureux,

Et dans les lueurs qu'il épanche
Comme une lune, peu à peu,
Elève vers le cristal bleu
Sa mystique prière blanche.
