Monique Morelli - Villon - Rondeau (Death, I appeal against your harshness)


Original Title: "Rondeau (Mort, j'appelle de ta rigueur)"
Text: François Villon
Death,
I appeal against your harshness
which has ravished me my mistress
And is not assuaged yet
If you do not hold me in languidness:

Since,
had nor strength nor vigour
But what harm was she doing to you alive,
Death ?
But what harm was she doing to you alive,

Two we were
and had only one heart;
If it's dead, no choice but to deviate,
indeed, or for me to live lifeless
Like the images, by heart,
Death !
