First Line: If for friendship many a day
Last Line: Have for only wage--a song.
Alternate Author Name(s): Racan, Seigneur De

IF for friendship many a day,
Trouble and solicitude,
I with verses only pay,
Do not such poor guerdon lay
To your friend's ingratitude.
For the gods whose virtues you
Closely with your own pursue--
Virtues rare on every side--
Howsoever much and long
They for thankless men provide,
Have for only wage--a song.
