Felicity - Translation Pierre CORNEILLE - Félicité Polyeucte


FELICITE
All Mankind’s felicity
stays prey to instability,
and may in no time fall from grace, -
as with glass, shattered, none replace, -
they share the same fragility

Félicité





Toute votre félicité
Sujette à l’instabilité
En moins de rien tombe par terre:
Et comme elle a l’éclat du verre
Elle en a la fragilité



Polyeucte IV,2

Pierre CORNEILLE 1606_1684
