I used to know what the French meant.

The reason I'm adding this one to my "published" set, is because of the last stanza.
From a poet's point of perception, it's perfection.

Also, Romeo and Juliet. Pure genius (Shakespeare, not me).

A divergant evaluation amid love and hate
Merge the couple as one, you'll forever turn up late.

"From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life,
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows,
Doth with their death bury their parents strife."

Sous les arbres droits le front colore,
Menace la tenure pour le salut et le desepoir.

"My only love sprung from my only hate!
Too early seen unknown, and know too late."

"O, I am fortunes fool!
Then I defy you stars."

If love be love by which, thieves and dupers do revile,
Then may by Venus, and Prevalence, givers of such beauty,
Let these proclaimers of fools gold be struck down dull,
So that love, restored to its former beauty, be pure, and love, again.
