Et d'etranges reves, Comme des soleils Couchants sur les greves, Fantomes vermeils, Defilent sans treves, Defilent, pareils A des grands soleils Couchants sur les greves. 4 8 12 16 Chanson dautomne Les sanglots longs Des violons De l'automne Blessent mon coeur D'une langueur Monotone. 6 Tout suffocant Et bleme, quand Sonne Theure, Je me souviens Des jours anciens Etjepleure; 12 Et je m'en vais Au vent mauvais Qui m'emporte Dega, dela, Pareil a la Feuille morte. 18 Paul Verlaine 49 Clair de lune Votre ame est un paysage choisi Que vont charmant masques et bergamasques Jouant du luth et dansant et quasi Tristes sous leurs deguisements fantasques.

Quand l'ombre menaca de la fatale loi Tel vieux Reve, desir et mal de mes vertebres, Afflige de perir sous les plafonds funebres II a ploye son aile indubitable en moi. 4 Luxe, 6 salle d'ebene ou, pour seduire un roi Se tordent dans leur mort des guirlandes celebres, Vous n'etes qu'un orgueil menti par les tenebres Aux yeux du solitaire ebloui de sa foi. 8 Oui, je sais qu'au lointain de cette nuit, la Terre Jette d'un grand eclat l'insolite mystere, Sous les siecles hideux qui l'obscurcissent moins.

4 C'est dans ta coupe aussi que j'avais bu l'ivresse, Et dans l'eclair furtif de ton ceil souriant, Quand aux pieds d'lacchus on me voyait priant, Car la Muse m'a fait Tun des fils de la Grece. 8 Je sais pourquoi la-bas le volcan s'est rouvert... C'est qu'hier tu l'avais touche d'un pied agile, Et de cendres soudain l'horizon s'est couvert. 11 Depuis qu'un due normand brisa tes dieux d'argile, Toujours, sous les rameaux du laurier de Virgile, Le pale Hortensia s'unit au Myrthe vert! 14 Gerard de Nerval Anteros 21 Tu demandes pourquoi j'ai tant de rage au coeur Et sur un col flexible une tete indomptee; C'est que je suis issu de la race d'Antee, Je retourne les dards contre le dieu vainqueur.
