Ô beaus yeus bruns, ô regars destournez

Language: French (Français)

Ô beaus yeus bruns, ô regars destournez,
Ô chaus soupirs, ô larmes espandues,
Ô noires nuits vainement atendues,
Ô jours luisans vainement retournez:

Ô tristes pleins, ô désirs obstinez,
Ô tems perdu, ô peines despendues,
Ô mile morts en mile rets tendues,
Ô pires maus contre moi destinez.

Ô ris, ô front, cheveux, bras, mains et doigts:
Ô lut pleintif, viole, archet et vois:
Tant de flambeaus pour ardre une femelle!

De toy me plein, que tant de feus portant,
Et Tant d'endrois d'iceus mon cœur tatant,
N'en est sur toy volé quelque estincelle.
