Original text and translations

French.png French text

À demi mort par maladie,
navré je suis, las pour mourir,
qu'en dites-vous ma douce amie,
ne me pouvez-vous secourir ?

English.png English translation

Half-perished from sickness,
Tormented am I, wearied to death,
What say you my sweet friend,
Can you not help me?

Translation by Michael Nick
