Force d’Amour.

LXXIII.

Le feu d’amour vainc la tempeste.
Il n’est feu qui tant d’ardeur face:
Car quand quelcun l’a en sa teste,
Il ard au coeur, & en la face.
Jupiter qui la foudre brasse.[1]

N’en fait point de telle vigueur:
Voire, si luy mesmes l’embrasse,
Il s’en brusle, & souffre langueur.

commentaires.

Cupidon, Dieu aislé, a bien eu tant de force & de
pouvoir, qu’il a rompu & dissipé le foudre: monstrant
par là, que le feu d’amour est plus fort que tout au-
tre feu.
