Example text

Il règne dans les nefs un jour de demi-deuil; On entend, au dehors, pleurer les hirondelles; Seuls les vitraux d’azur gardent un peu d’orgueil; Et la Vierge pâlit dans ses vieilles dentelles. Tout est âgé, tout s’appauvrit; les hauts piliers Semblent les troncs, veufs de rameaux, d’une futaie; On sent une lointaine et vague odeur de plaie; Est-ce qu’un crucifix se mettrait à saigner? Ah! cette maladive odeur de vieille église, Fade, mais sensuelle, et qui fait qu’on défaille: Lys, crèches de Noël dont se fane la paille, Encens irrésolu qui meurt dans l’ombre grise; Vin d’or évaporé des burettes, bougies Dont la souffrance aura racheté nos péchés; Et tant d’odeurs encor: les nappes défraîchies Et les voiles de noce aux bouquets d’orangers.

O réverbères! Ils s’alarment Et sentent la mort en chemin; Ils ont quelque chose d’humain, Ils tremblent et semblent pâlir Comme si dans leur flamme il y avait des larmes! Qu’est-ce qui va mourir? Un cygne averti chante sur l’eau noire . . Il se peut que la Ville meure Ce soir . . Les réverbères pleurent! “La Nuit est seule, comme un pauvre. . ” from Le Miroir du Ciel Natal La Nuit est seule, comme un pauvre. Les réverbères offrent Leur flamme jaune Comme une aumône. La nuit se tait comme une église close.

Who will soon die? A swan, forewarned, sings on the black water . . It must be the City that is dying This evening . . The streetlamps weep! “The Night is alone, like a beggar . ” from The Mirror of the Native Sky The Night is alone, like a beggar. The streetlamps offer Their yellow flame As alms. The night is as quiet as a locked church. The melancholy streetlamps Open their rose flame, Bright bouquets of light, Bouquets under glass, the holy relics That fill the Night with plenary Indulgence. Georges Rodenbach Sans doute que la Ville empire Ce soir?
