Original text and translations

French.png French text

Sur tous regrets le mien plus piteux pleure
Jetant soupirs transperçants mon las coeur
Car j'ai perdu l'amiable liqueur
Que tant je plainds et plaindrai en ample heure.

English.png English translation

Of all desires, mine most pitifully cry,
Piercing my wretched heart, forcing a sigh,
For having lost all that might satisfy,
My lot I loudly do and shall decry.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
