La Rampe


La double rampe, auprès du bassin que surplombe
La terrasse de marbre où le buis nu serpente,
Incurve sa montée et courbe sa descente,
Et de la vasque en pleurs sanglote l’eau qui tombe.

La corneille criarde et la blanche colombe
Alternent, l’une rauque et l’autre gémissante ;
Chaque cyprès, le long de cette double pente,
Figure un cippe noir d’où le lierre retombe.

Si tu descends à gauche et si je monte à droite,
Nous verrons tous les deux, en l’onde dont miroite
La patine d’or vert qu’éteint le crépuscule,

Toi, la Déesse en fuite et moi le Dieu discret,
Statue en marche qui s’avance ou qui recule,
Glisser inversement de cyprès en cyprès.
