Ô beaux cheveux d'argent mignonnement retors !

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



Ô beaux cheveux d'argent mignonnement retors !
Ô front crêpe et serein ! et vous, face dorée !
Ô beaux yeux de cristal ! ô grand bouche honorée,
Qui d'un large repli retrousses tes deux bords !

Ô belles dents d'ébène ! ô précieux trésors,
Qui faites d'un seul ris toute âme enamourée !
Ô gorge damasquine en cent plis figurée !
Et vous, beaux grands tétins, dignes d'un si beau corps !

Ô beaux ongles dorés ! ô main courte et grassette !
Ô cuisse délicate ! et vous, jambe grossette,
Et ce que je ne puis honnêtement nommer !

Ô beau corps transparent ! ô beaux membres de glace !
Ô divines beautés ! pardonnez-moi, de grâce,
Si, pour être mortel, je ne vous ose aimer.
