A. Delahays, 1854



529 - When I have seen such interchange of state, Or state itself confounded to decay ; Ruin hath taught me thus to ruminate That Time will come and take my love away. This thought is as a death, which cannot choose But weep to have that which it fears to lose.
532 - In me thou see'st the glowing of such fire That on the ashes of his youth doth lie, As the death-bed whereon it must expire, Consumed with that which it was nourish'd by. This thou perceiv'st, which makes thy love more strong, To love that well which thou must leave ere long.
531 - No longer mourn for me when I am dead Than you shall hear the surly sullen bell Give warning to the world that I am fled From this vile world, with vilest worms to dwell : Nay, if you read this line, remember not The hand that writ it ; for I love you so, That I in your sweet thoughts would be forgot, If thinking on me then should make you woe. O, if, I say, you look upon this verse When I perhaps compounded am with clay, Do not so much as my poor name rehearse, But let your love even with my life...
530 - Since brass, nor stone, nor earth, nor boundless sea, But sad mortality o'er-sways their power, How with this rage shall beauty hold a plea, Whose action is no stronger than a flower?
545 - Villon sut le premier, dans- ces sicles grossiers, Dbrouiller l'art confus de nos vieux romanciers.
532 - That time of year thou mayst in me behold When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang Upon those boughs which shake against the cold, Bare ruin'd choirs, where late the sweet birds sang. In me thou see'st the twilight of such day As after sunset fadeth in the west; Which by and by black night doth take away, Death's second self, that seals up all in rest.
287 - Un vento pellegrin che 1' aer turba (Per la spera del sol eh' or la riscalda), E passa il mare, onde n' adduce copia Di nebbia tal, che, s' altro non la sturba, Questo emispero chiude tutto e salda; E poi si solve e cade in bianca falda Di fredda neve ed in noiosa pioggia, Onde 1' aere s' attrista tutto e piagne ; Ed Amor, che sue ragne Ritira al ciel per lo vento che poggia, Non m' abbandona ; si bella donna Questa crudel che m
286 - Che 1' orizzonte, quando il sol si corca, Ci partorisce il geminato cielo, E la stella d' amor ci sta rimota Per lo raggio lucente, che la 'nforca Si di traverso, che le si fa velo, E quel pianeta, che conforta il gelo, Si mostra tutto a noi per lo grand
499 - En una noche oscura, con ansias en amores inflamada, ¡oh dichosa ventura!, salí sin ser notada, estando ya mi casa sosegada: a escuras y segura, por la secreta escala disfrazada, ¡oh dichosa ventura!, a escuras y en celada, estando ya mi casa sosegada; en la noche dichosa, en secreto, que nadie me veía, ni yo miraba cosa, sin otra luz y guía sino la que en el corazón ardía.
317 - Levava gli occhi miei bagnati in pianti, E vedea, che parean pioggia di manna, Gli angeli che tornavan suso in cielo, Ed una nuvoletta avean davanti, Dopo la qual gridavan tutti : Osanna. E s'altro avesser detto a voi dire 'lo.
