This work is most likely NOT public domain in either Canada and other countries where the term is life+50 years (like China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide), or the EU and in countries where the copyright term is life+70 years. However, as this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements, it is almost certainly public domain in the USA and is therefore hosted on an American server for US residents only.

Misc. Comments

Text

Ses yeux sont pareils aux étoiles
aux feux qui sillonnent l'espace;
sa face au soleil est semblable,
quand l'astre rayonne au zénith.

Des cieux les couleurs lumineuses,
la pourpre, l'azur, l'or diaprent
la robe éclatante qu'il porte
pour naître à nouveau parmi nous.

Autour de lui brillle la dides
entourent son chef rayonnent.
L'éclair vient frapper les collines,
fait naître des fleurs printanières.

«Gardez-vous le Verbe?» dit-il,
et nous tous répondîmes «Toujours!»
«Je regne» -dit-il- «sans partagé.
Plus fort gronde alors le tonnerre.

«C'est l'heure:» dit-il en son gloire.
«Les moissons attendent. Amen.»
Pieux et fervents, nous suivîmes.
La foudre fondait les nuages.
Sept gloires d'étoiles splendides
montrait du désert le chemin.
