Victor Hugo: Exil (Poème)

Exil

Si je pouvais voir, ô patrie,
Tes amandiers et tes lilas,
Et fouler ton herbe fleurie,
Hélas !

Si je pouvais, – mais, ô mon père,
O ma mère, je ne peux pas, –
Prendre pour chevet votre pierre,
Hélas !

Dans le froid cercueil qui vous gêne,
Si je pouvais vous parler bas,
Mon frère Abel, mon frère Eugène,
Hélas !

Si je pouvais, ô ma colombe,
Et toi, mère, qui t’envolas,
M’agenouiller sur votre tombe,
Hélas !

Oh ! vers l’étoile solitaire,
Comme je lèverais les bras !
Comme je baiserais la terre,
Hélas !

Loin de vous, ô morts que je pleure,
Des flots noirs j’écoute le glas ;
Je voudrais fuir, mais je demeure,
Hélas !

Pourtant le sort, caché dans l’ombre,
Se trompe si, comptant mes pas,
Il croit que le vieux marcheur sombre
Est las.

Victor Hugo
(1802-1885)
