J’ay Desire’ Cent FoisA hundred times I wish I could transform myselfAnd become an invisible spirit that hides inside your heartAnd seeks to comprehend your scornWhich seems to me so cruel.I would become master of your emotion.I would discover the pulse of your nervesAs they flow through your flesh and changeYour disdain. And then I would know you.In spite of yourself, against your willI would be a part of your desires and your terms.And I would chase the coolness from your veins.So perfectly, love could set fire to you,Then, when I saw them burst into full flame,I would step out and be a man again.Pierre de Ronsard

J’ay Desire’ Cent Fois

A hundred times I wish I could transform myself
And become an invisible spirit that hides inside your heart
And seeks to comprehend your scorn
Which seems to me so cruel.

I would become master of your emotion.
I would discover the pulse of your nerves
As they flow through your flesh and change
Your disdain. And then I would know you.

In spite of yourself, against your will
I would be a part of your desires and your terms.
And I would chase the coolness from your veins.

So perfectly, love could set fire to you,
Then, when I saw them burst into full flame,
I would step out and be a man again.


Pierre de Ronsard
