Original text and translations

French.png French text

Fortune alors que n’avais connaissance
Suivre mon bien me donna sa faveur
Mais maintenant elle tourne sa chance
Au lieu d’aider, elle me tient rigueur.

English.png English translation

I credit Fortune, though I did not know,
With guarding me and granting me a smile
But now she’s changed her mind and cast me low
Instead of helping, she puts me on trial.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
