  • 1820, Alphonse de Lamartine, “Le Lac”, in Premières méditations poétiquesfr.Wikisource:
    Temps jaloux, se peut-il que ces moments d’ivresse, ¶ Où l’amour à longs flots nous verse le bonheur, ¶ S’envolent loin de nous de la même vitesse ¶ Que les jours de malheur ?
    Jealous time, could it be that these drunken moments ¶ Where love in long floods pours us enjoyment ¶ Fly off far from us at the same speed ¶ As the days of hardship?
