Original French
Amour me poingt et si ne me veult plaindre,
Ma peine double et sans espoir demeure.
Par quoi vault mieulx qu'en me taisant ie meure:
Doulc'est la mort qui peult doleur estaindre

Modern French
Amour me fait souffrir et si je ne veux me plaindre,
ma peine double et demeure sans espoir.
par quoi il vaut mieux que je reste en me taisant:
Douce est la mort qui peut éteindre la douleur.

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
