«Ô temps ! suspends ton vol, et vous, heures propices !
Suspendez votre cours :
Laissez-nous savourer les rapides délices
Des plus beaux de nos jours !

Assez de malheureux ici-bas vous implorent,
Coulez, coulez pour eux ;
Prenez avec leurs jours les soins qui les dévorent ;
Oubliez les heureux.

Mais je demande en vain quelques moments encore,
Le temps m’échappe et fuit ;
Je dis à cette nuit : Sois plus lente ; et l’aurore
Va dissiper la nuit.»

Extrait de Alphonse de Lamartine (1790-1869), Méditations poétiques, Le lac

***

«O Time ! Pause in your flight, and you, favorable hours !
Suspend your process :
Let us enjoy the transient delight
That fills our fairest day !

Here unhappy crowds cry out to you in prayers,
Flow, Time, and set them free ;
Run through their days and through their ravening cares ;
But leave the happy be.

But in vain I pray the hours to linger on
And time slips into flight.
I tell this night: Be slower ; and the dawn
Undoes the raveled night.»

Extract from The Lake by Alphonse de Lamartine (1790-1869), Poetic Meditations
