Pour vos beaux yeux, Iris

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Pour vos beaux yeux, Iris, mon amour est extresme ;
-- Jamais on ayma tant Iris que je vous ayme ;
-- Je souffre je languis, sans espoir de guérir ;
-- Je pleureje soupire et je m'en vais mounr ;
-- Bergers conservez bien cette flame si belle,
Et croyez que le plus fidelle
Est celuy qui me peut charmer ;
-- C'est donc moy, belle Iris, que vous devez aymer ;
-- Le temps me l apprendra, vivez, vivez en espérance,
L'on juge de l'amour par la perseverance.
