Du passereau de Maupas

Language: French (Français)

Las ! il est mort ; pleurez-le, damoyselles ;
Le passereau de la jeune Maupas.
Un autre oyseau, qui n'a plumes qu'aux aisles,
L'a devoré : le cognoissez-vous pas ? 
C'est ce fascheux Amour qui sans compas,
Avecques luy se jettoit au giron 
De la pucelle, et voloit environ,
Pour l'enflamber, et tenir en destresse ; 
Mais par despit tua le passeron,
Quand il ne sceut rien faire à la maistresse.
