Ma maistresse, ma bonne amie,
très humblement je vous supplye
que de moy ayez souvenance

et je jure ma conscience
qu'aussi longtemps que j'aurai vie,
de vous aymer sera ma fantasie.

English.png English translation

My lady true, my dainty sweet,
Most humbly do I thee entreat
To turn sometime your thoughts to me.

And I do swear most ardently
As long as my poor heart shall beat,
That loving you shall e’er be my conceit.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
