Faisons du temps un doux usage,
Vivons pour contenter nos feux :
Belle Philis, c'est être sage,
Que de sçavoir se rendre heureux.

L'Amour remplit nôtre esperance ;
Ressentons de nouveaux desirs :
Devons tous deux nôtre constance
A l'usage de nos plaisirs.

Et lorsque la fatale Parque
Aura tranché de si beaux jours,
Que Caron dans la même barque
Avec nous passe nos amours.
