Original text and translations

French.png French text

Amour me poingt, et si je me veulx plaindre,
Ma peine double et sans espoir demeure.
Par quoy vault mieulx qu'en me taisant je meure:
Doulce est la mort qui peult douleur estaindre.

English.png English translation

Love vexes me, and if I would complain,
My ills will grow and without hope I'll lie.
Much better to be silent and to die:
Sweet is the death that extinguishes pain.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
