Thérèse
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG
 Aimer Thérèse, est ma folie,
 Cette folie est un poison;
 Mais peut on la voir si jolie,
 Hélas! sans perdre la raison?

 Oui les septs Sages de la Grêce
 À Thérèse eusseunt fait la cour:
 Pour elle oubliant la sagesse,
 Ils eussent raffollés d'amour.
