The Laugh of Madame d’Albret
By Clément Marot (1496–1544)
 
SHE has indeed a throat of lovely whiteness,
  The sweetest speech, and fairest cheeks and eyes;
But in good sooth her little laugh of lightness
  Is where her chiefest charm, to my thought, lies.
  With its gay note she can make pleasure rise,        5
Where’er she hap to be, withouten fail;
And should a bitter grief me e’er assail,
  So that my life by death may threatened be,
To bring me back to health will then avail
  To hear this laugh with which she slayeth me.        10
