Excerpt

s trop blancs et trop roses...
Faudrait que nous en convinssions,

Autant le jeune homme profite
Dans l'intérêt de sa beauté,
Prêtre d'Éros ou néophyte
D'aimer en toute nudité.

Admirons cette chair splendide,
Comme intelligente, vibrant,
Intrépide et comme timide
Et, par un privilège grand

Sur toute chair, la féminine
Et la bestiale--vrai beau!--
Cette grâce qui fascine
D'être multiple sous la peau

Jeu des muscles et du squelette,
Pulpe ferme, souple tissu,
Elle interprète, elle complète
Tout sentiment soudain conçu.

Elle se bande en la colère,
Et raide et molle tour à tour,
Souci de se plaire et de plaire,
Se tend et détend dans l'amour.

Et quand la mort la frappera
Cette chair qui me fut un dieu,
Comme auguste, elle fixera
Ses éléments, en marbre bleu!
