• O lovely river of Yvette!
    O darling river! like a bride,
    Some dimpled, bashful, fair Lisette
    Thou goest to wed the Orge's tide.
    O lovely river Yvette!
    O darling stream! on balanced wings
    The wood-birds sang the chansonnette
    That here a wandering poet sings.

    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1883). “Longfellow's Poetical Works: With 83 Illustrations by Sir John Gilbert, R.A., and Other Artists”
