Songs That Every Child Should Know 23 Charming Gabrielle
(Charmente Gabrielle)
The composition and authorship of this song is attributed to Henri IV., and written in 1600. The heroine of the romance was Gabrielle d'Estries, Duchess of Beaufort.
But I, dear love, shall crown thee,
For I a crown have won, You win it from the heart of me,
I won it from Ballone; Adieu to thee I cherish!
O cruel day; That life should ever perish,
Love lasts for aye!
