Marot's poem:
 J'attends secours de ma seule pensée :
    J'attends le jour, que l'on m'éconduira,
    Ou que du tout la belle me dira :
    "Ami, t'amour sera récompensée."
    Mon alliance est fort bien commencée,
    Mais je ne sais comment il en ira :
    Car, s'elle veut, ma vie périra,
    Quoiqu'en amour s'attend d'être avancé
    Si j'ai refus, vienne Mort insensée :
    A son plaisir de mon coeur jouira.
    Si j'ai merci, adonc s'éjouira
    Celui qui point n'a sa Dame offensée.
    Clément MAROT (1497-1544)
    (L'Adolescence clémentine)

English Translation
I wait for rescue from my thoughts alone
I wait for the day when I will be rejected
Or else the lovely lady will tell me
"Friend, your love will be rewarded".
My relationship has started well
But I cannot tell the outcome
Because, if she wishes, I can die
Despite my hope to win her love
If I am refused, let death come
She will play with my heart at her pleasure
If I am shown mercy, he who has not
offended his lady will find joy.
