I          “Another happy day, dear Bleuette, has glided away.”

           “To be succeeded, dear Coquelicot, by one like it on the morrow.”

           “Dost thou regret thy old form?”

           “Wouldst thou cease to be a woman?”

           “No.”

           “Neither would I.”

           “How fortunate that we selected this modest village, where we can live so quietly. Happiness is found only in the country.”

           “With Lucas, who is so good.”

           “Nothing in the world is so delightful as to be a woman.”

           “To be happy, one must have a heart.”

           Then the two maidens placed themselves before their mirror.

           “Am I not prettier than when I was only a bluebottle?” said one.

           “Who would not prefer me to all the corn-poppies on earth?” added the other.

           Thus the blonde and the brunette would converse together every evening. Then they would embrace each other, and sleep until the first cooings of their turtles awoke them.
