Les indolents

Language: French (Français)

"Bah ! malgré les destins jaloux,
Mourons ensemble, voulez-vous ?
- La proposition est rare.

- Le rare est le bon. Donc mourons
Comme dans les Décamérons.
- Hi ! hi ! hi ! quel amant bizarre !

- Bizarre, je ne sais. Amant
Irréprochable, assurément.
Si vous voulez, mourons ensemble ?

- Monsieur, vous raillez mieux encor
Que vous n'aimez, et parlez d'or;
Mais taisons-nous, si bon vous semble ! "

Si bien que ce soir-là Tircis
Et Dorimène, à deux assis
Non loin de deux sylvains hilares,

Eurent l'inexpiable tort
D'ajourner une exquise mort.
Hi! hi! hi! les amants bizarres !
