Treasure Island

Joachim du Bellay

(1525 - 1 January 1560 / Château of La Turmelière, Lire)

Le Babylonien ses hauts murs vantera


Le Babylonien ses hauts murs vantera
Et ses vergers en l'air, de son Ephésienne
La Grèce décrira la fabrique ancienne,
Et le peuple du Nil ses pointes chantera :

La même Grèce encor vanteuse publiera
De son grand Jupiter l'image Olympienne,
Le Mausole sera la gloire Carienne,
Et son vieux Labyrinth' la Créte n'oubliera :

L'antique Rhodien élèvera la gloire
De son fameux Colosse, au temple de Mémoire :
Et si quelque oeuvre encor digne se peut vanter

De marcher en ce rang, quelque plus grand faconde
Le dira : quant à moi, pour tous je veux chanter
Les sept coteaux romains, sept miracles du monde.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
