Sonnet à une lunaticque

Language: French (Français) after the French (Français)

Il n’est point tant de barques à Venise,
D’huistres à Bourg, de lièvres en Champagne,
D’ours en Savoye et de veaulx en Bretagne,
De cygnes blancs le long de la Tamise,

Ny tant d’amours se traictant à l’église,
Ny différentz aux peuples d’Allemagne,
Ny tant de gloire à un seigneur d’Espagne,
Ny tant se trouve à la cour de feingtise,

Ny tant y a de monstres en l’Africque,
D’opinions en une Respublicque,
Ny de pardons à Rome un jour de feste,

Ny d’avarice aux hommes de praticque,
Ny d’arguments en une Sorbonnicque,
Que ma mye a de lunes dans la teste.
