Original text
La grant doulceur de la bonne nature
attire a toy des gens laffection
fors seullement de celle creature
qui en amours te donne passion
car ta vertu et doulce' attraction
ne font si non la render plus cruelle
que pour bonheur tu as douleur en elle

Modern French
La grande douleur de ta bonne nature
attire vers toi l'affection des gens.
Fors seulement de cette creature
qui en amours te donne passion
car sa vertu et douce attraction
ne font, si non la rendre plus cruelle,
que pour le bonheur tu as douleur par elle.

English.png English translation

The great pains of your gentle nature
attracts people's affection towards you.
Not just from those
who bring you passion,
for virtue and attraction
make it so that, if not through cruelty,
your luck will come through pain.
