  • Je suis le fou de Pampelune,
    J'ai peur du rire de la Lune,
    Cafarde, avec son crêpe noir...
    Horreur ! tout est donc sous un éteignoir.
    • From Pamplona, I'm the loon
      scared of the laughter of the cunning Moon,
      under the crepe of world-pain that won't pass...
      For – o terror! – all is under a jar of glass.
      • Heures, second stanza, from Les Amours jaunes (1873).
