Here Victor Hugo, for the delight of children, plays with words: the French alternance between ’masculine’ and ’feminine’ rhymes - here the alternance between -in and -ine. The poem by Victor Hugo consisted of 7 stanzas, among which we have selected only 3. Translation is almost impossible (we give hereafter a poor attempt):

Great ball under the tamarind, People dance and play the tambourine; In a whisper, without chagrin, Mathurin to Mathurine, Mathurine to Mathurin.

It’s the evening, what a joyous row Let’s sing with full throat At the ball rather than the lectern, Mathurin to Mathurine, Mathurine to Mathurin.

Under the elm the pilgrim Asks a female pilgrim A kiss for a quatrain. Mathurin to Mathurine, Mathurine to Mathurin.
