Qui veut avoir liesse

Language: French (Français)

Qui veut avoir liesse
Seulement d'un regard,
Vienne voir ma maîtresse,
Que Dieu maintienne et gard !
Elle a si bonne grâce,
Que celui qui la voit,
Mille douleurs efface,
Et plus s'il en avoit.

Les vertus de la belle
Me font émerveiller.
La souvenance d'elle
Fait mon coeur éveiller.
Sa beauté tant exquise
Me fait la mort sentir ;
Mais sa grâce requise
M'en peut bien garantir.
