O sottes gens qui s'en vont travailler,
à voir un feu de tel bois allumé.
Arrêtez-vous pour vous émerveillez
à voir un feu de tel bois allumé,
qui, plus qu'il brûle, moins est consumé.
Est si ce cas vous semble trop étrange,
allez voir celle oú il est enflammé,
et vous le croirez et brûlerez ensemble.
