D'un seul soleil

Language: French (Fran├žais)

D'un seul soleil vient toute ma lumière
Et sans ses rays elle ne se peult voir,
Et toutesfois sa clerté toute entière
M'offusque et faict ma lueur disparoir.
Car luy présent ne puis rien apparoir

Mais au contraire, aussitost qu'il s'absente
Mon teinct ternist et ma face excellente
Font eclipser dueil et obscurité.
Que fauldroit-il, pour me rendre contente
Que son cler ciel feust de moy habité.
