En désirant que je vous voye
à vostre honneur et mon plaisir,
qui seroit brièvement sans mentir,
s'il fust ce que souhaiteroye.

En désirant que je vous voie,
à votre honneur et mon plaisir,
qui serait, brièvement sans mentir
s’il fût tel que (je) le souhaite.

I just wish to cast my eyes upon you
for your honour and my pleasure
- only briefly, I swear -
just to see if it is everything I desire.
