++ Why is my soul sad? ++

 

Why you moan ceaselessly,

O my soul? Answer me!

Where from comes this weight of sadness

Who presses on you today?

In the grave which wastes us,

Crying, you do not still have

Led your last friends!

The serene celestial body of your life

Still rises; and envy

Look why you moan!

 

Where am I? Is it me? I wake up

Of a dream which is not finished!

Everything was promise and marvel

In an infinite future!

I was young!... Regrettably! My years

On my head fall faded

And will never blossom again!

My heart was full! He is empty!

My fertile breast he is dry!

I liked! Where are the ones that I liked?

 

And nevertheless it is necessary to live still,

Sleep, wake up alternately,

And be lying about of dawn in dawn

This returning burden of days?

When we drank up to the dregs

The cup écumante of life,

Ah! To break her would be the good!

To hope, to wait, it is to live!

That serves to count and to follow

Days which bring nothing more?

 

I am a vampire and my soul is so tired....

So much drunk blood the dregs...

He still pours on my lips, i am so tired......

 

Alphonse de LAMARTINE ( 1790-1869 )
