Un poète aime la nature et le dit
Que vois-je ?
Le ruisseau est tout mouillé ;
Et les bois sont inflammables et secs comme des triques.
Mais mon coeur est tout petit.
Les arbres ressemblent à de grands peignes mal faits ;
Et le soleil a, tel une ruche, de beaux rayons dorés.
Mais mon coeur a froid dans le dos.
La lune s'est brouillée avecque ses voisins ;
Et le ruisseau est trempé jusqu'aux os.
