Autograph poem signed with his first name entitled La limace et l'escargot. (s.l.n.d.) 2 pp. gd in-4°. Astonishing poem " Lady slug had, of a snail - Made knowledge in neighborhood - It was established between them because they were not silly - A kind of cousinhood - And all the day, they went discussing - The beautiful letters and the works - Which are the honor of our time. - The filthy cousin went like a sucker - So good, so sweet and so tender. - That soon the snail thought of condescending - To take her as his wife (...) But not, his beautiful one! - Make vow she said - Of a chivalrous patience - Because I who am of the favorite literates, - [...] Who am one of the pillars of the communist party - Who Fernandez knows, who the Malvy frequents - I cannot suddenly without that one cries scandal, - Marry a capitalist - Who carries with him his trunk. - The chagrined snail begged - (...) He left towards other conquests. - He who waits too long and postpones happiness - Flattering himself of a greater happiness - Will obtain nothing, because the fate that is mocked - Will go weary, knocking at other doors."
