SUR LA MAGNIFICQUE
ENTREE DE MONSEIGNEUR
DE S. ANDRE,
gouverneur de lyon..[1]

Hannon premier prudent Duc de Chartage
Tracta en main doucement sans outrage,
Un seul Lyon, la plus fiere des bestes.
Mais combien plus d’honneur est d’advantage
Au Sieur d’Albon, moderer d’esprit sage
Lyon, ayant plusieurs humaines testes?

Notes:
