Seule, de mots heureux, faciles, transparents, Elle sait revetir ces fantomes errants: Ainsi des hauts sapins de la Finlande humide, De l'ambre, enfant du ciel, distille l'or fluide, Et sa chute souvent rencontre dans les airs Quelque insecte volant qu'il porte au fond des mers; De la Baltique enfin les vagues orageuses Roulent et vont jeter ces larmes precieuses ou la fiere Vistule, en de nobles coteaux, Et le froid Niemen expirent dans ses eaux.
