You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Ronsard repose ici, qui, hardi des...

Language: French (Français)

Ronsard repose ici, qui, hardi des l'enfance, 
Détourna d'Helicon les muses en la France,
Suivant le son du luth et les traits d'Apollon. 
Mais peu valut sa muse encontre l'aiguillon 
De la mort, qui cruelle en ce tombeau l'enserre: 
Son âme soit à Dieu, son corps soit à la terre.

Ronsard lies here, bold from childhood

Language: English after the French (Français)

Ronsard lies here, who, bold from childhood
Turned the Muses away from Helicon and towards France,
Following the sound of the lute and Apollo's darts.
But little worth was his muse against the prick
Of death, who cruelly sealed him in this tomb:
If his soul may be with God, his body can rest in the earth.
