J'ay contenté

Language: French (Français)

J'ay contenté
Ma voulenté
Car j'ay esté
D'amours traicté
J'ay eu tourment,
Bon traictement,
J'ay eu doulceur, et cruaulté:
Et ne me plainds fors seulement
D'avoir aymé si loyaulment
Celle, qui est sans loyaulté.

Cueur affeté
Moins arresté
Qu'ung seul moment,
Ta lascheté
M'a dejecté
Prend hardiment
Et vous Dames de grand beaulté
Si l'honneur aymez cherement,
Vous n'ensuyvrez aulcunement
Celle, qui est sans loyaulté.
