I should for grief and anguish die recureless,
That day I missed my Flora fair and sightly,
Clearer than is the sun that shines so brightly.

De chagrin et d'angoisse je devrais mourir sans espoir de guérir
Aujourd'hui elle m'a manqué ma belle et plaisante Fleur
Plus pure que le soleil qui brille si fort.
