Example text

The half-starved earth, glad to live again, Shudders with pleasure at the sun’s embrace... And in the old house all is flushed with warmth. Dark clothes no longer strew the ground, The wind’s stopped whistling under the door... As if a fairy had flitted through... The joyful children have cried out twice... There, 7 8 Poèmes, 1869–1871 Près du lit maternel, sous un beau rayon rose, Là, sur le grand tapis, resplendit quelque chose... ’ ..................................... Première soirée ––Elle était fort déshabillée Et de grands arbres indiscrets Aux vitres jetaient leur feuillée Malinement, tout près, tout près.

Since then, we’ve been like men possessed. The hordes of workers in the street have grown, And all those dark figures of the night have gone To haunt the portals of the rich. And I go too, hunting down your spies. 16 Poèmes, 1869–1871 Et je vais dans Paris, noir, marteau sur l’épaule, Farouche, à chaque coin balayant quelque drôle, Et, si tu me riais au nez, je te tuerais! ––Puis tu peux y compter, tu te feras des frais Avec tes hommes noirs, qui prennent nos requêtes Pour se les renvoyer comme sur des raquettes Et, tout bas, les malins!

Citoyen! citoyen! c’était le passé sombre Qui croulait, qui râlait, quand nous prîmes la tour! Nous avions quelque chose au cœur comme l’amour. Nous avions embrassé nos fils sur nos poitrines. Et, comme des chevaux, en soufflant des narines Nous allions, fiers et forts, et ça nous battait là... Nous marchions au soleil, front haut,––comme cela––, Dans Paris! On venait devant nos vestes sales. Enfin! Nous nous sentions Hommes! Nous étions pâles, Sire, nous étions soûls de terribles espoirs: Et quand nous fümes là, devant les donjons noirs, Agitant nos clairons et nos feuilles de chêne, Les piques à la main; nous n’eûmes pas de haine, ––Nous nous sentions si forts, nous voulions être doux!
