Poem on travel, published within the literary journal La Revue du Lyonnais. First presenting some arguments against travel (futility; benefits of calm; duties to country and family), it then counters these arguments, and provides a praise of and an invitation to travel. Travel is a remedy to boredom, and everything that was observed during the travels will entertain the public listening to the adventures.
