Poème was written in response to a request from Eugène Ysaÿe for a violin concerto. Chausson felt unequal to the task of a concerto, writing to Ysaÿe "I hardly know where to begin with a concerto, which is a huge undertaking, the devil's own task. But I can cope with a shorter work."

It was commenced in April 1896 and finished on 29 June.

Here is an arrangement for violin and string orchestra. This arrangement uses a combination of the versions Chausson for violin and orchestra as well as the version for violin and piano.
