Pour parvenir, bon pied bon oeil
Avoir fault à l’embuche
Et soubtenir plaisir et dueil
D’amoureulx escarmuche.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
To triumph in an ambush
When past the prime of youth,
You’ll need all the vigour you have:
I tell you that’s the truth.
You must take the rough with the smooth
When push comes to shove
In skirmishes of love.
