Épigraphe pour un livre condamné

Lecteur paisible et bucolique,
Sobre et naïf homme de bien,
Jette ce livre saturnien,
Orgiaque et mélancolique.
Si tu n'as fait ta rhétorique
Chez Satan, le rusé doyen,
Jette ! tu n'y comprendrais rien,
Ou tu me croirais hystérique.
Mais si, sans se laisser charmer,
Ton oeil sait plonger dans les gouffres,
Lis-moi, pour apprendre à m'aimer ;
Ame curieuse qui souffres
Et vas cherchant ton paradis,
Plains-moi !... sinon, je te maudis !

Epigraph for a condemned book

Peaceful and pastoral reader,
abstemious and innocent decent man,
throw away this saturnine orgiastic
and melancholy book.
If you didn't take rhetoric at
the school of the cunning dean, Satan,
sling it! You wouldn't understand at all,
or you would think me crazy.
But if, without letting itself be enchanted,
your eye can plunge into the depths,
read me in order to learn to love me;
you curious soul who suffers
and goes looking for its heaven,
take pity on me!... or else I'll curse you!
