Excerpt

e gros espiègle,
L'éléphant engloutir les nombreux pains de seigle.


En plein soleil, le long du chemin de halage,
Quatre percherons blancs, vigoureux attelage,
Tirent péniblement, en butant du sabot,
Le lourd bateau qui fend l'onde de l'étambot;
Près d'eux, un charretier marche dans la poussière.
La main au gouvernail, sur le pont, à l'arrière,
N'écoutant pas claquer le brutal fouet de cuir,
Et regardant la rive et les nuages fuir,
Fume le marinier, sans se fouler la rate.
-- «Le peuple et le tyran!» me dit un démocrate.


Près du rail, où souvent passe comme un éclair
Le convoi furieux et son cheval de fer,
Tranquille, l'aiguilleur vit dans sa maisonnette.
Par la fenêtre, on voit l'intérieur honnête,
Tel que le voyageur fiévreux doit l'envier.
C'est la femme parfois qui se tient au levier,
