Mignonn', allon voir si la rose

Language: French

  Mignonn', allon voir si la rose
Qui ce matin avoit declose
Sa robe de pourpr' au soleil,
A point perdu, cette vesprée,
Le plis de sa robe pourprée,
Et son teint au vostre pareil.

  Las, voyés comm' en peu d'espace,
Mignonn', ell' a dessus la place,
Las, las, ses beautés laissé cheoir!
Ô vrayement maratre nature,
Puis qu'une telle fleur ne dure,
Que du matin jusques au soir!

  Donc, si vous me croiés, mignonne:
Tandis que vostr' age fleuronne
En sa plus verte nouveauté,
Cueillés, cueillés vostre jeunesse,
Comm' à cette fleur, la viellesse
Fera ternir vostre beauté.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
