M. SWEENEY
LE CHEF DE CET ÉVÉNEMENT.

French Verse:
. . . Sweeney entre les merles
(See Mr T.S.E.’s “The Seven Septets.”)
. . . Sweeney entre les merles,
les merles et merlettes,
merlettes et merlesses,
perles, merles femelles. . .
et Sweeney, pêle-mêle,
se révèle près d’elles!

Gegen entgegengesetzte Sterne
strebt der edelste Held
selbst vergebens.
