Illustration of Victor Hugo's poem "L'Art d'être grand-père", Section XVII, poetry IV "Jeanne asleep": "The bird sings, I'm at the bottom of rêveries.Rose she is sleeping under the flowering branches, in his crib shaking like a nest of halcyon, Sweet, eyes closed, without attentionAu sliding shade and sun on elle.Elle is small, she is supreme beauty of surnaturelle.Ô ! 'I think I innocent child, she dreamed, and on his forehead descendUn interleaving serene visions women of the blue we take for queens, angels, lions with air benign, good poor protected giants by dwarfs, flower of triumphs in the woods, heavenly trophéesD'arbres, full of the glow of the fairies, A cloud where Eden appears half's what befalls the endormi.Le cradle child children is the palace of dreams, God begins to make them a bunch of sweet lies; Hence their fresh smile and deep paix.Plus a later say: God, you make me trompais.Mais good God answers in the dark depth: - No. Your dream is heaven. I gave you the ombre.Mais this sky, in the bush. Wait another cradle tomb. - So I think. O spring! Sing, bird! "
