Gérard de Nerval: A Victor Hugo – Poéme

  

A Victor Hugo – Poéme

De votre amitié, maître, emportant cette preuve
Je tiens donc sous mon bras le Rhin.
—J’ai l’air d’un fleuve
El je me sens grandir par la comparaison.

Mais le Fleuve sait-il lui pauvre
Dieu sauvage
Ce qui lui donne un nom, une source, un rivage,
Et s’il coule pour tous quelle en est la raison.

Assis au mamelon de l’immense nature,
Peut-être ignore-t-il comme la créature
D’où lui vient ce bienfait qu’il doit aux Immortels:

Moi je sais que de vous, douce et sainte habitude,
Me vient l’Enthousiasme et l’Amour et l’Étude,
Et que mon peu de feu s’allume à vos autels.

Gérard de Nerval
(1808 – 1855)
