Malheureux l'an, le mois, le jour, l'heure et le point,

Joachim du Bellay 1525 (Liré) – 1560 (Paris)

Malheureux l'an, le mois, le jour, l'heure et le point,
Et malheureuse soit la flatteuse espérance,
Quand pour venir ici j'abandonnai la France :
La France, et mon Anjou, dont le désir me point.

Vraiment d'un bon oiseau guidé je ne fus point,
Et mon coeur me donnait assez signifiance
Que le ciel était plein de mauvaise influence,
Et que Mars était lors à Saturne conjoint.

Cent fois le bon avis lors m'en voulut distraire,
Mais toujours le destin me tirait au contraire :
Et si mon désir n'eût aveuglé ma raison,

N'était-ce pas assez pour rompre mon voyage,
Quand sur le seuil de l'huis, d'un sinistre présage,
Je me blessai le pied sortant de ma maison ?
