Heureux ennui

Language: French (Français)

Heureux ennui en toi seul je puis
Trouver repos des maux qui me déçoivent,
Et par toi seul mes passions reçoivent
Le doux oubli du tourment où je suis.
Bienheureux soit mon tourment qui n'empire
Et le doux joug sous lequel je respire,
Et bienheureux le penser soucieux
Qui me repaît du doux souvenir d'elle,
Et plus heureux la foudre de ses yeux
Qui cuit mon coeur dans un feu qui me gèle.
