Excerpt

re:
«A tous ces gueux il faut ôter la chevelure,

«Et la faire flotter aux vents!»
Champlain, sortant du bois, au premier rang se place,
Et, d'un coup d'arquebuse, en abat trois sur place,

Le chef et ses premiers suivants!

Ce coup fameux inspire aux Iroquois la crainte;
Ils luttent chaudement, mais leur bravoure est feinte:

La frayeur se lit dans leurs yeux!
Ils reculent bientôt en cohorte confuse,
Épouvantés qu'ils sont par les coups d'arquebuse

Que Champlain décharge sur eux!

Voyez-les déguerpir, ces guerriers si terribles
Qui devaient déchirer de leurs ongles horribles

Les cadavres de leurs rivaux!
Ils sont lâches, c'est vrai, mais--tigres indomptables--
Ils voudront assouvir leurs haines implacables

Contre Champlain et ses héros.

Les ans passent. Champlain quitte la colonie
Pour aller demander à la France bénie
