You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Bellone, partagez mon courroux legitime,

Language: French (Français)

Recitatif :
Bellone, partagez mon courroux legitime,
Ramgez les climats qui cachent mon Rival,
Ah ! c’est trop peu d'une victime
Pour calmer mon depit fatal !
Lancez vos traits, armez vos mains impitoyables,
Que la flâme et le fer volent de toute parts,
Et des mortels tombans sous vos coups redoutables,
Elevez un trophée à la fureur de Mars.

Lentement :
Qu'entends-je ?... C'est Venus !
Dieux la Perfide avance !
Par de justes mépris commençons ma vengeance...
Vains projets... Je soûpire...
Helas ! Est ce ainsi que je veux outrager ses appas.

Air lentement :
Pourquoi fuyez-vous ma présence ?
Que ne puis je vous imiter ?
Helas ! Je voy vôtre inconstance,
Et je m’efforce d’en douter.
C'est en vain que tout vous accuse,
Quand vous êtes loin de ces lieux ;
Je trouve déjà vôtre excuse,
Et dans mon cœur et dans vos yeux.
