Des herb ais assez, belle, pour toy guérir
Sans aultrepart un médecin quérir
Pour à ton mal donner allègement.
Puis tu scais bien quanteffois et comment
Je t’ay servy sans quelque recompense.
Je ne dis pas tout ce que mon cueur pense.

Herbs enough I have for my lady’s healing:
No need to call the doctor in my place.
Well you know the way that I am feeling:
I’ve served you long in vain – no sign of grace.
There’s more within my heart than I’m revealing,
More concealed than you may read in my face.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
