Excerpt

;s Memphitiques bors,
Et pour la méme cause ont exposé leurs corps
Au gré des vents, des flots, d'une maratre terre,
Et au guerrier hazard du sanglant cimeterre:
Qu'ici à peu de frais, sans qu'un robuste bras
Rougisse au sang humain le meurtrier coutelas,
Il se peut acquerir une gloire semblable.
Laquelle à sa grandeur sera plus proufitable.

Allez doncques, vogués, ô genereux François,
Cependant que plus loin vers les Armouchiquois
Les voiles nes tendons, pour outre Mallebarre
Rechercher quelque Port qui nous serve de barre
Soit pour nous opposer à un fort ennemi,
Ou pour y recevoir seurement nôtre ami,
Et la méme éprouver si la Nouvelle-France
A noz travaux rendra selon notre esperance.

Neptune, si jamais tu as favorisé
Ceux qui dessus tes eaux leurs vies ont usé;
Vray Neptune, fay nous chacun où il desire
A bon port arriver,

Author of the Day

Julie Anne Nelson
When Julie Anne Nelson isn't working as a technical editor, she loves to live out her passion for young adult fiction through her writing. Her wildly popular The Sevens series was inspired by a Percy Shelley poem and, as our author of the day, she tells us all about it. Nelson also talks about her writing habits, her tendency to sneak extra books in between writing/editing the main series and how her teaching career inspired her to write for young adults.
