  • "Il y a un temps pour tout" : et l'éternité, alors ?

    263-small.jpgLe livre biblique de l'Ecclésiaste nous livre une méditation désabusée sur l'existence. Leconte de Lisle la commente en la renversant : et l'éternité alors ?

     

     

     

     

     

    L’Ecclésiaste a dit : Un chien vivant vaut mieux
    Qu’un lion mort. Hormis, certes, manger et boire,
    Tout n’est qu’ombre et fumée. Et le monde est très vieux,
    Et le néant de vivre emplit la tombe noire.

    Par les antiques nuits, à la face des cieux,
    Du sommet de sa tour comme d’un promontoire,
    Dans le silence, au loin laissant planer ses yeux,
    Sombre, tel il songeait sur son siège d’ivoire.

    Vieil amant du soleil, qui gémissais ainsi,
    L’irrévocable mort est un mensonge aussi.
    Heureux qui d’un seul bond s’engloutirait en elle !

    Moi, toujours, à jamais, j’écoute, épouvanté,
    Dans l’ivresse et l’horreur de l’immortalité,
    Le long rugissement de la Vie éternelle.
