Où t'attend ta maîtresse, ami,
ne parle plus de doux port,
mais d'un lieu de tristesse
et sans aucun confort.
Or, la tienne confort
qui d'ennui n'est plus belle
languit jusqu'à la mort
comme la tourterelle.

Speak not of your meeting place
as a sweet harbour, my friend,
but label it an abode of sadness
without the slightest solace.
For your mistress, whose beauty has withered,
offers but her crying as a solace
until she dies
just like a dove.
