18. La marchande d'herbes aromatiques [sung text not yet checked]

Ta paille azur de lavandes,
Ne crois pas avec ce cil
Osé que tu me la vendes
Comme a l'hypocrite s'il
 
En tapisse la muraille
De lieux les absolus lieux
Pour le ventre qui se raille
Renaître aux sentiments bleus.
 
Mieux entre une envahissante
Chevelure ici mets-la
Que le brin salubre y sente
Zéphirine, Paméla
 
Ou conduise vers l'époux
Les prémices de tes poux.

25. Printemps [sung text not yet checked]

C'est de la côte d'Adam
Qu'on a retiré Eve ;
Mais quand sa vie s'achève,
Où va-t-elle, mourant ?

Adam serait-il son tombeau ?
Faut-il lorsqu'elle se lasse,
Lui ménager une place
Dans un homme bien clos ?

26. Quatrain valaisan n°7  [sung text not yet checked]

Vois-tu, là-haut, ces alpages des anges 
entre les sombres sapins ?
Presque célestes, à la lumière étrange, 
ils semblent plus que loin.

Mais dans la claire vallée et jusques aux crêtes, 
quel trésor aérien !
Tout ce qui flotte dans l'air et qui s'y reflète 
entrera dans ton vin.
