Tintin in Charleroi, fleeing from the elephant

"He thought he saw an Elephant
That practised on a fife:
He looked again, and found it was
A letter from his wife.
'At length I realize,' he said,
'The bitterness of Life!'"

O Night and stars return!
And hide me from the hostile light
That does not warm, but burn"
