Comme l'aile d'une orfraie
Qu'un subit orage effraie,
Par l'air que la neige raie,
Son manteau se soulevant

Claquait au vent,

Et montrait d'un air de gloire
Un torse d'ombre et d'ivoire,
Tandis que dans la nuit noire
Luisaient en des cris stridents

Va, vient, luit et clame,

Et qu'au firmament,
Où l'ouragan erre,
Rugit le tonnerre
Formidablement.
