Gérard de Nerval: A Madame Sand


 A Madame Sand

« Ce roc voûté par art, chef-d’oeuvre d’un autre âge,
Ce roc de Tarascon hébergeait autrefois
Les géants descendus des montagnes de Foix,
Dont tant d’os excessifs rendent sûr témoignage. »

O seigneur Du Bartas ! Je suis de ton lignage,
Moi qui soude mon vers à ton vers d’autrefois ;
Mais les vrais descendants des vieux Comtes de Foix
Ont besoin de témoins pour parler dans notre âge.

J’ai passé près Salzbourg sous des rochers tremblant ;
La Cigogne d’Autriche y nourrit les Milans,
Barberousse et Richard ont sacré ce refuge.

La neige règne au front de leurs pies infranchis ;
Et ce sont, m’a-t-on dit, les ossements blanchis
Des anciens monts rongés par la mer du Déluge.

Gérard de Nerval
(1808 – 1855)
