Un fiancé sous le balcon de sa fiancée
Ne dormez pas, belle endormie.
Écoutez la voix de votre bien-aimé.
Il pince un rigaudon.
Comme il vous aime !
C'est un poète.
L'entendez-vous ?
Il ricane, peut-être ?
Non : il vous adore, douce Belle !
Il repince un rigaudon et un rhume.
Vous ne voulez l'aimer ?
Pourtant, c'est un poète, un vieux poète !
