Original text and translations

French.png French text

Après avoir, hélas, passé
tout mon temps
en deuil et peine,
en travail et tristesse,
servant pour le mieux
que je peux, ma maîtresse.
Est-ce raison que je sois chassé?

English.png English translation

Alas! After having spent
all my time
in mourning and pain,
in labour and sadness,
serving my mistress
as well as I could.
Is this reason for chasing me off?
