JOSÉ – MARIA DE HEREDIA: LES FUNÉRAILLES

José-Maria_de_Heredia1_v1

José-Maria de Heredia
(1842 – 1905)

Les Funérailles

Vers la Phocide illustre, aux temples que domine
La rocheuse Pytho toujours ceinte d’éclairs,
Quand les guerriers anciens descendaient aux enfers,
La Grèce accompagnait leur image divine.
Et leurs Ombres, tandis que la nuit illumine
L’Archipel radieux et les golfes déserts,
Écoutaient, du sommet des promontoires clairs,
Chanter sur leurs tombeaux la mer de Salamine.
Et moi je m’éteindrai, vieillard, en un long deuil ;
Mon corps sera cloué dans un étroit cercueil
Et l’on paîra la terre et le prêtre et les cierges.
Et pourtant j’ai rêvé ce destin glorieux
De tomber au soleil ainsi que les aïeux,
Jeune encore et pleuré des héros et des vierges.
