L'espoir confus

Language: French (Fran├žais)

L'espoir confus a plus haut désirer
Que le prier ne s'est osé estandre
Faict a l'esprit une peine endurer
Quinesepeultque demoyseulcomprendre
Amour le scait et ne le veult entendre

Raison l'entend et ne le veult scavoir
Las que de maulx pourroys avant avoir
Qui soient uniz en une volenté
ce Puisque l'ung a plus que l'aultre pouvoir
A luy me rendz pour estre contenté.
