Les Cerfs en Rut pour les Biches se...

Language: French (Français)

Les Cerfs en Rut pour les Biches se battent,
Les Amoureux pour les Dames combattent,
Un même effet engendre leurs discords:
Les Cerfs en rut d'amour brament, & crient,
Les Amoureux gémissent, pleurent, prient,
Eux & les Cerfs feroient de beaux accords !
Amants font cerfs à deux pieds fous un corps:
Ceux ci [...] a quatre , & pour venir aux testes
II ne s'en faut que ramures & corps
Que vous, Amants, ne foiez aussi bestes.
