Metz moy au bord d'ou le soleil se lève

Jean Antoine de Baif 1532 (Venice) – 1589 (Paris)

Metz moy au bord d'ou le soleil se léve,
Ou pres de l'onde ou sa flamme s'esteint,
Metz moy aux lieux que son rayon n'ateint,
Ou sur le sable ou sa torche est trop gréve.

Metz moy en joye ou douleur longue ou breve,
Liberté franche, ou servage contreint,
Mets moy au large, ou en prison retreint.
En asseurance ou doute, guerre ou trêve.

Metz moy aux piedz ou bien sur les sometz
Des plus hautz montz, Ô Meline, et me metz
En ombre triste, ou en gaye lumiere,

Metz moy au ciel, dessous terre metz moy,
Je seray mesme, et ma derniere foy
Sera sans fin egalle a ma premiere.
