Mins liefkens bruin oghen en haren lachende mondt
die doen mi pine endoghen.
Dat ic si sien noch sprecken en mach
dat claeg ic God en minen oghen:
ic ben betroghen.

My beloved’s brown eyes and her laughing mouth
cause me pain.
I complain to God and to my eyes
because I may neither see her nor speak to her:
I am betrayed.
