Treasure Island

Alphonse Allais

(1854-1905 / France)

Complainte amoureuse

Oui dès l'instant que je vous vis
Beauté féroce, vous me plûtes
De l'amour qu'en vos yeux je pris
Sur-le-champ vous vous aperçûtes
Ah ! Fallait-il que vous me plussiez
Qu'ingénument je vous le dise
Qu'avec orgueil vous vous tussiez
Fallait-il que je vous aimasse
Que vous me désespérassiez
Et qu'enfin je m'opiniâtrasse
Et que je vous idolâtrasse
Pour que vous m'assassinassiez.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
