J.-K. Huysmans: Sonnet Liminaire

J.-K. Huysmans

1848-1907


SONNET LIMINAIRE

Croquis de concert et de bals de barrière;
La reine Marguerite, un camaïeu pourpré;
Des naïades d’égout au sourire éploré,
Noyant leur long ennui dans des pintes de bière;

Des cabarets brodés de pampres et de lierre;
Le poète Villon, dans un cachot, prostré;
Ma tant douce tourmente, un hareng mordoré,
L’amour d’un paysan et d’une maraîchère:

Tels sont les principaux sujets que j’ai traités:
Un choix de bric-à-brac, vieux médaillons sculptés,
Emaux, pastels pâlis, eau-forte, estampe rousse,

Idoles aux grands yeux, aux charmes décevants,
Paysans de Brauwer, buvant, faisant carrousse,
Sont là. Les prenez-vous? A bas prix je les vends.
