Triste aventure

Language: French

Predit me fut, que devoit fermement
Un jour aymer celui dont la figure
Me fut descrite : et sans autre peinture
Le reconnu quand vy premierement :

Puis le voyant aymer fatalement,
Pitié je pris de sa triste aventure :
Et tellement je forçay ma nature,
Qu'autant que lui aymay ardentement.

Qui n'ust pensé qu'en faveur devoit croitre
Ce que le Ciel et destins firent naitre ?
Mais quand je voy si nubileus aprets,

Vents si cruels et tant horrible orage :
Je croy qu'estoient les infernaus arrets,
Qui de si loin m'ourdissoient ce naufrage.
