Original text and translations

French.png French text

C'est en amour une peine trop dure
d'être éloigné longtemps de ses amours,
car en passant les heures et les jours,
le pauvre amant trop de douleur endure.

English.png English translation

There is in love a formidable pain
When being from one’s lover long estranged
For as the hours and days pass unchanged,
The poor lover must endure too much strain.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
