Le premier jour du mois de may

Language: French (Français)

Le premier jour du mois de may 
De tanné et de vert perdu,
Las ! j'ay trouvé mon cueur vestu
Dieu scet en quel piteux array ! 

Tantost demandé je lui ay 
Dont estoit cest habit venu :
Le premier jour du mois de may
De tanné et de vert perdu.

Il m'a respondu : bien le sçay ;
Mais, par ma foy sera congneu.
Desplaisance m'en a pourveu ; 
Sa livrée je porteray 
Le premier jour du mois de may.
