Antoine de Latour : Notre-Dame de Paris (Poème)

La cathédrale Notre-Dame ravagée par les flammes

Le feu a pris dans les combles du monument le plus visité d’Europe un peu avant 19 heures.

Le Monde, 15 Avril 2019 à 19h50

 

 

Notre-Dame de Paris

Ce poème vivant, seconde Notre-Dame,
Qui doit se voir encore debout à l’horizon,
Quand l’autre qui l’inspire et dont il prend le nom,
Aura dans la poussière exhalé sa grande âme ;

Ce colosse qu’un soir de son rêve de flamme
L’artiste a vu sortir, fait d’or et de limon,
Ce chant aux mille échos, où l’ange et le démon
Mêlent le cri du tigre au soupir de la femme ;

Ce livre de l’enfer et du ciel, le voici :
Lisez, mais si vers vous un pauvre enfant transi
Tend la main pour sa sœur qui danse sur la place,

Donnez, ne comptez pas, c’est Dieu qui comptera ;
Donnez, que votre cœur, en voyant l’humble tasse,
Se rappelle toujours la brune Esméralda.

Antoine de Latour
(1808-1881)
Poème: Notre-Dame de Paris (1835)
