Adieu, ce bel œil tant humain

Language: French (Français)

Adieu, ce bel œil tant humain,
Bouche de bon propos armée,
D'ivoire la gorge et la main
Taille sur toutes bien formée:
Adieu, douceur tant estimée,
Vertu l'ambre ressemblant:
Adieu de celui mieux aimée
Qui moins en montra de semblant.
Plaisir n'ai plus, mais vy en déconfort;
Morte est m'amour, dont suis en grand' langueur
Langoureux suix plein d'am re liqueur;
Le cœur me part pour sa dolente mort.
