Original text and translations

French.png French text

En amour y a du plaisir
En amour, douleur se pourmène
Y cueille qui en peut choisir
La rose et l'espine n'y prenne

Mais si du bien tant est prochaine
que l'un sans l'aultre ne puisse estre
Quitter le plaisir pour la peine
C'est par Dieu faute de connaître.

In love there is pleasure.
In love, pain can be found.
One can benefit from it by choosing
The rose, and avoid the thorn.

But it is so close to goodness,
That one without the other cannot exist.
Leave pleasure for pain,
It comes with God when you have no relations.
