Sur quel espoir nouveau, dans quels heureux climats croyez-vous decouvrir la trace de ses pas ? Qui sait meme, qui sait si le roi votre pere veut que de son absence on sache le mystere ? Et si, lorsqu'avec vous nous tremblons pour ses jours, tranquille, et nous cachant de nouvelles amours, ce heros n'attend point qu'une amante abusee...
