Treasure Island

Jean Antoine de Baif

(19 February 1532 – 19 September 1589 / Venice)

Depuis le jour que mon ame fut prise


Depuis le jour que mon ame fut prise
Par tes doux feuz traitrement gratieux,
Un seul doux trait jusqu'ici de tes yeux
N'avoyt ta grace a mon ardeur promise :

Elle aujourdhuy, par longue usance aprise
De se nourrir en travaux soucieux,
M'a quitté presque au goust delitieux
D'un nouveau bien, dont ton oeil l'a surprise.

Ô gaye oeillade, oeillade qui vrayment
As effacé tout cela de tourment,
Que j'enduroys depuis ta seur ainée.

Un an entier avoyt langui mon cueur,
Puiss'il languir en la mesme langueur,
Moy, t'essayer encor une autre année.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
