Original text and translations

French.png French text

Ta bonne grâce et maintien gracieux
et le regard de tes doux riants yeux
m'ont transporté le coeur de telle sorte.
Que contraint suis de crier à la porte
"Miséricorde au pauvre langoureux".

English.png English translation

Your gentle beauty and gracious bearing
And glance when a smile your eyes are wearing
Have so completely bound me in your thrall
That I am forced from your doorstep to call,
“Have pity on the poor one despairing!”

Translation by Thomas Daughton
