Fille Du Vieux Pasteur


Fille du vieux pasteur, qui d'une main agile
Le soir emplis de lait trente vases d'argile,
Crains la génisse pourpre, au farouche regard,
Qui marche toujours seule et qui paît à l'écart.
Libre, elle lutte et fuit, intraitable et rebelle.
Tu ne presseras point sa féconde mamelle,
A moins qu'avec adresse un de ses pieds lié
Sous un cuir souple et lent ne demeure plié.
