Les oiseaux d'alentour
chantent dans ce bocage,
et je connois à leur ramage
que rien ne manque plus
au bonheur de leurs feux.
Ils goûtent avant moi
les fruits de la constance;
Peut-être mieux traités,
sont-ils plus amoureux.

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 about 0.03%
