From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     Six regular four-line stanzas, rhyming a, b, a, b. One of Dumas' daintiest lyrics.
     First published in "Le Chansonnier des Graces" for 1826.
     Next in "Almanach des Dames," 1828.
     Again "La Psyché" for February, 1829.
     Then included in "Les Annales Romantiques," Paris, Louis Janet, 1830.
     It was set to music by César Franck, and dedicated to Mme. Claire Brissaud; Paris, S. Richault, Boulevard Poissonnière.
     It is included in Edouard Fournier's "Poétiques de l'École Romantique: 1825-1840"; Paris, Laplace, Sanchez et Cie, 1880.
     M. Glinel included it in his "Alexandre Dumas et Son Œuvre," pp. 219 and 220.
     The text is also given, in the original, in Spurr's "Life and Writings of A. Dumas."
     It forms the third piece in the MS. "Préludes Poétiques," pp. 33 to 36.
     It instigated a piece of verse entitled "Le Fil de la Vierge," written by an admirer, and published by M. Michaux in his "Souvenirs Personnels sur Alex. Dumas," Paris, 1885.
