Esmeralda in Prison (Poem by Victor Hugo)

Old Poem

Esmeralda in Prison
By Victor Hugo

Phoebus, is there not this side the grave,
                Power to save
Those who're loving? Magic balm
That will restore to me my former calm?
Is there nothing tearful eye
Can e'er dry, or hush the sigh?
I pray Heaven day and night,
As I lay me down in fright,
To retake my life, or give
All again for which I'd live!
Phoebus, hasten from the shining sphere
                To me here!
Hither hasten, bring me Death; then Love
May let our spirits rise, ever-linked, above!
