Les miens aussi brief verras decliner
voiant au vray que fortune envieuse
de nostre amour veult estre curieuse
pas ung deppart le faire decliner.

Mine you are going to see as quickly wane
Now that I know clearly that jealous fate,
Eager to meddle in our love’s estate,
Seeks through one’s departure to make it wane.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
