Au joly bocquet
Croist la violette.
Je vis hier Jaquet,
Dire a Michelette:
Faisons un banquet,
Sur ce verd tronquet.
Lors de sa malette,
Belle et joliette,
Tira un pacquet.
Voire dict la fillette.
Au joly bocquet,
Croist la violette.

English.png English translation

In the inviting grove
grows the violet.
Yesterday I saw Jaquet,
who said to Michelette:
"Let's have a banquet
on that green tree trunk."
Then from his basket most fine
he took out a package.
"Yes," said the girl,
"in the inviting grove
grows the violet."
