Évocation
Language: French (Français) 
Madone des Hystéries I
Monte sur l'autel de mes vers,
La fureur du glaive à travers
Tes maigres mamelles taries.

Tes blessures endolories
Semblent de rouges yeux ouverts:
O Madone des Hystéries!
Monte sur l'autel de mes vers.

De tes longues mains appauvries,
Tends à l'incrédule univers
Ton Fils aux membres déjà verts,
Aux chairs tombantes et pourries,
O Madone des Hystéries!

Madonna
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the French (Français) 
Available translation(s): CHI ENG FRE ITA NYN
Steig, o Mutter aller Schmerzen,
Auf den Altar meiner Verse!
Blut aus deinen magren Brusten
Hat des Schwertes Wut vergossen.

Deine ewig frischen Wunden
Gleichen Augen, rot und offen.
Steig, o Mutter aller Schmerzen,
Auf den Altar meiner Verse!

In den abgezehrten Händen
Hältst du deines Sohnes Leiche.
Ihn zu zeigen aller Menschheit -
Doch der Blick der Menschen meidet
Dich, o Mutter aller Schmerzen!
