From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     Fifteen regular four-line stanzas, rhyming a, b, a, b.
     First appeared in "La Psyché" for 1829.
     In 1830 it was in "L'Almanach des Dames."
     It figures in the Album of Autographs of Mme. Mennessier-Nodier (see letter from that lady dated from Fontenay-aux-Roses, June 12th, 1886).
     It also forms the sixteenth piece (pp. 139 to 146) of the MS. "Préludes Poétiques." There only it bears the following epigraph :
         "Il est autour de nous des êtres invisibles
         Nés d'un souffle idéal et cependant sensibles."
                 Jules de Reségnier.
     M. Glinel notes twelve variants in his MS. collection.
