Une belle jeune espousée

Language: French (Français)

Une belle jeune espousée
Estoit une foys en devis
Avec une vieille ruzée
Et disoit » dame, a vostre advis
Les hommes sont ilz si ravis
Quand ilz le font et ont ilz bien
Autant que nous d'aise et de bien ?«
» Je croy, se luy respondit elle,
Ilz sentent doulceur toute telle
Mais elle passe comme vent. «
» Je m'esbahis donc, dist la belle,
Qu'il n'y retourne plus souvent. «
