Original text and translations

French.png French text

C'est à grand tort que moi, pauvrette, endure
et que je suis si court tenue.
Plus malheureuse n'y a dessous la nue (:nuages).
A l'endure, la peine m'est trop dure.

English.png English translation

It’s just so wrong what I, poor dear, endure
And all the things you me deny.
No one on earth’s more miserable than I.
In truth, the pain’s too much for me, ‘tis sure.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
