Les Animaux Malades de la Peste
They died not all, but all were sick:
No hunting now, by force or trick,
To save what might so soon expire.
No food excited their desire;
Nor wolf nor fox now watch'd to slay
The innocent and tender prey.
[The turtledoves each other] fled;
So love and therefore joy were dead.

Translation by Elizur Wright, Jr., 1842.
Ils ne mouraient pas tous, mais tous étaient frappés:
On n'en voyait point d'occupés
A chercher le soutien d'une mourante vie;
Nul mets n'excitait leur envie;
Ni Loups ni Renards n'épiaient
La douce et l'innocente proie.
Les Tourterelles se fuyaient:
Plus d'amour, partant, plus de joie.

Jean de La Fontaine, 1678.
