French.png French text

O cruaulté logée en grand'beaulté,
O grand beaulté qui loges cruaulté,
Quand ma doleur iamais ne sentiras,
Au moins ung iour pense a loyaulté:
Ingrate allors (peult estre) te diras.

Modern French
O cruauté logée en grande beauté
O grande beauté qui loge cruauté.
Quand ma douleur jamais ne sentira
Au moins un jour, pense à ma loyauté,
peut-être te diras-tu ingrate.

English.png English translation

O cruelty lurking in great beauty,
O great beauty that harbors cruelty,
Tho’ never will you care to feel my woe,
One day at least give thought to loyalty:
Perhaps the ingrate in you then you’ll know.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
