Le triste cueur que avec vous demeure
Si quelque foys devant voz yeulx souspire
Prenez pitié d'alleger son martire
et ne souffrez qu'entre voz bras il meure.

The sad soul, seeing you, in his desire
Before your eyes may sigh now and again:
Then show some mercy, ease your lover's pain
And let him not between your arms expire.
Translation by Mick Swithinbank
