Ma foi, c'est fait de moi ...


Ma foi, c'est fait de moi. Car Isabeau
M'a conjuré de lui faire un rondeau.
Cela me met en une peine extrême.
Quoi treize vers : huit en eau, cinq en ème !
Je lui ferais aussitôt un bateau.

En voilà cinq pourtant en un monceau.
Faisons-en huit, en invoquant Brodeau,
Et puis mettons : par quelque stratagème.
Ma foi, c'est fait.

Si je pouvais encor de mon cerveau
Tirer cinq vers, l'ouvrage serait beau.
Mais cependant je suis dedans l'onzième,
Et si, je crois que je fais le douzième.
En voilà treize ajusté au niveau.
Ma foi, c'est fait !

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
