Treasure Island

Andre Marie de Chenier

(30 October 1762 – 25 July 1794 / Istanbul)

Ah! Prends Un Coers Humain


Ah! prends un coeur humain, laboureur trop avide,
Lorsque d'un pas tremblant l'indigence timide
De tes larges moissons vient, le regard confus,
Recueillir après toi les restes superflus.
Souviens-toi que Cybèle est la mère commune.
Laisse la probité que trahit la fortune.
Comme l'oiseau du ciel, se nourrir à tes pieds
De quelques grains épars sur la terre oubliés.

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
