Emile Verhaeren poème: Mon Village

E m i l e   V e r h a e r e n

(1855-1916)


Mon village

Une place minime et quelques rues,

Avec un Christ au carrefour ;

Et l’Escaut gris et puis la tour

Qui se mire, parmi les eaux bourrues ;

Et le quartier du Dam, misérable et lépreux,

Jeté comme au hasard vers les prairies ;

Et près du cimetière aux buis nombreux,

La chapelle vouée à la Vierge Marie,

Par un marin qui s’en revint

On ne sait quand

Des Bermudes ou de Ceylan ;

Tel est – je m’en souviens après combien d’années –

Le village de Saint-Amand

Où je suis né.

C’est là que je vécus mon enfance angoissée,

Parmi les gens de peine et de métier,

Corroyeurs, forgerons, calfats et charpentiers,

Avec le fleuve immense au bout de ma pensée…

Toute la Flandre – Les tendresses premières

(1904).
