J'ay d'un costé l'honneur

Language: French (Fran├žais)

J'ay d'un costé l'honneur tant estimé
Devant les yeulx, lequel je veulx avoir.
J'ay d'aultre part un amy tant aymé
Dedans mon cœur, que je n'ay le pouvoir
De l'en oster, et si ne les puis voir
Tous deux en moy dont fort je me tourmente.
Las, je ne sçay duquel me rendre absente,
Car l'un m'est doulx et si près de mon cceur,
L'aultre un chascun si très fort il contente
Qu'encontre moy il sera le vainqueur.
