ÂMES EN PEINE

 

Et soudain, devant nous, impuissants, tout bascule.

Hier n’est plus demain, et jadis fut naguère.  

Aux places désertées une onde de silence bouscule

Un monde qui ne sait pas et vit une nouvelle ère

 

Du feu prémonitoire la cathédrale est morte

Et les chants se sont tus des pèlerins en pleurs.

Antique nef innocente toi que les flammes emportent

Il nous faut te sauver pour retrouver nos chœurs.

 

Les hommes et leurs enfants devenus immobiles

Regardent seuls mais égaux le temps de leur ennui.

Sans travaux et sans joies chacun est sur son ile

L’angoisse est dans son âme et la peur l’envahit.

 

Quand ? Oui quand reviendras-tu ? O soleil qui inonde

Nos yeux naufrages au calme des rivages !

Réchauffe ceux qui nous sauvent des couronnes immondes

Et salue au couchant leur généreux courage !
