Chant de Catherine

vers/verse, pub:1834

From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     Six regular eight-line stanzas, rhyming a, b, a, b, c, c, d, d, the last line in each verse consisting of the single syllable "non" or "oui."
     This pretty little song probably belongs to a slightly earlier period, since, with one or two small variants, it is to be seen in the first rough draft of the never played or printed "Le Roi Robert et la Belle Edith," in a green-bound MS. book.
     The song now occurs in the drama of "Catherine Howard," Act I., Tab. II., Sc. iii., to which refer.
