Du confict en douleur

Language: French (Français)

Si j'ay du mal, maulgré moy je le porte;
Et s'ainsi est qu'aulcun me reconforte,
Son reconfort ma douleur point n'appaise;
Voylà comment je languis en mal aise,
Sans nul espoir de lyesse plus forte.

Et fault qu'ennuy jamais de moy ne sorte,
Car mon estat fut faict de telle sorte,
Dès que fuz né; pourtant ne vous desplaise
     Si j'ay du mal.

Quand je mourray ma douleur sera morte;
Mais ce pendant mon povre cueur supporte
Mes tristes jours en fortune maulvaise,
Dont force m'est que mon ennuy me plaise,
Et ne fault plus que je me desconforte
    Si j'ay du mal.
