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.

Notes about green, red, and white dots
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it
and, despite my best efforts, this project has never received public funding. It is
supported financially by roughly 0.013% of our visitors.
So if you found
the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
