Excerpt

;s Memphitiques bors,
Et pour la méme cause ont exposé leurs corps
Au gré des vents, des flots, d'une maratre terre,
Et au guerrier hazard du sanglant cimeterre:
Qu'ici à peu de frais, sans qu'un robuste bras
Rougisse au sang humain le meurtrier coutelas,
Il se peut acquerir une gloire semblable.
Laquelle à sa grandeur sera plus proufitable.

Allez doncques, vogués, ô genereux François,
Cependant que plus loin vers les Armouchiquois
Les voiles nes tendons, pour outre Mallebarre
Rechercher quelque Port qui nous serve de barre
Soit pour nous opposer à un fort ennemi,
Ou pour y recevoir seurement nôtre ami,
Et la méme éprouver si la Nouvelle-France
A noz travaux rendra selon notre esperance.

Neptune, si jamais tu as favorisé
Ceux qui dessus tes eaux leurs vies ont usé;
Vray Neptune, fay nous chacun où il desire
A bon port arriver,
