81) In a sonnet taken from Ronsard's Amours, published in 1552, the poet carries on a dialogue with the Gatine forest, also introduced as his secretary, and the Loire river:
Saint Gatine, fortunate secretary of my agony, Who respond in your woods, Now in high, now in low voice, To the long sighs that my heart cannot keep quiet: Loire, you who restrain the impetuous movement Of the swiftest currents through my land, When you hear me accuse this beauty, Who always leaves me hungry and thirsty: If I receive the favorable sign, And if my eye was not yesterday deceived, By the sweet looks of my sweet Thalia, From now on you will make me a poet, And you will be called throughout France, The one my laurel, the other my Castalie [my fountain of Parnassus].
