Mortellement atteint d'une flèche...

Language: French (Français)

Mortellement atteint d'une flèche empennée,
Un Oiseau déplorait sa triste destinée,
Et disait, en souffrant un surcroît de douleur :
» Faut-il contribuer à son propre malheur ?
5Cruels humains, vous tirez de nos ailes
De quoi faire voler ces machines mortelles.
Mais ne vous moquez point, engeance sans pitié :
Souvent il vous arrive un sort comme le nôtre.
Des enfants de Japet toujours une moitié
10Fournira des armes à l'autre. «
