La reine recluse. Jnd Jean-Noël Ducat
   
Ce n’était pas la Mort, car j’étais debout.
Et que tous les Morts, gisent –.
Ce n’était pas la Nuit, car toutes les Cloches,.
Langue dardée, sonnaient Midi.

Ce n’était pas le Gel, car sur ma Chair. ]E sentais – ramper — des Siroccos –.
Ni le Feu – car le seul Marbre de mes pieds.
Eût gardé frais, un Sanctuaire —.

Pourtant, j’éprouvais tout cela ensemble,.
Les Formes que j’ai vues.
Apprêtées, pour l’Enterrement,.
Me rappelaient la mienne –.

Comme si pour l’adapter à un cadre,.
On eût rogné ma vie,.
Et qu’elle ne pût respirer sans clé,.
On aurait dit Minuit —.

Quand tout ce qui tictaque — stoppe —.
Et que partout — bée l’espace —.
Ou que l’Affreux gel — aux matins d’Automne,.
Abolit le Sol Palpitant —.

Mais, surtout, le Chaos — Sans bornes — froid —.
Sans une Chance, ou un espar —.
Ni même l’Annonce d’une Terre —.
Pour justifier – le Désespoir.

***

It was not Death, for I stood up,.
And all the Dead lie down —.
It was not Night for all the Bells.
Put out their Tongues, for Noon.

It was not Frost, for on my Flesh.
I felt Siroccos — crawl —.
Nor Fire – for just my marble feet.
Could keep a Chancel, cool —.

And yet, it tasted like them all,.
The Figures I have seen.
Set orderly, for Burial.
Reminded me, of mine —.

As my life were shaven,.
And fitted to a frame,.
And could not breathe without a key,.
And ’twas like Midnight, some —.

When everything that ticked — has stopped —.
And spaces stares — all around —.
Or Grisly frosts — first Autumn morns,.
Repeal the Beating Ground —.

But, most, like Chaos — Stopless — cool —.
Without a Chance, or spar —.
Or even a Report of Land —.
To justify — Despair.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
