Old French
Assouvy suys, mais sans cesser désire.
J'ay mes souhays et ne me peult suffire.
Las, je languys et suys content d'amours.
Je suys tout seur, et me doubte tousjours.
A vostre advis, doib je plourer ou rire?

Modern French
Assouvi suis, mais sans cesser désire.
J'ai mes souhaits et ne me peut suffire.
Las, je languis et suis content d'amour.
Je suis tout sûr et me doubte toujours.
A votre avis, dois-je pleurer ou rire?

English.png English translation

I’m sated, but desire will never die.
I have my wants and can’t them satisfy.
I ache for love and am content with it.
I’m quite assured, but my self-doubt won’t quit.
In your view, should I laugh or should I cry?

Translation by Thomas Daughton
