Quand auprès de vous je me suis plaint de mes peines
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Quand auprès de vous je me suis plaint de mes peines,
Alors vous avez baillé et n'avez rien dit ;
Pourtant quand je les ai délicatement mises en vers,
Alors vous m'avez fait de grands éloges.
