Petite fleur coincte et jolye
las dictes moy si vous maimes
avecque moy plus mattendes
car il mennuye
ma doulce amye

Modern French
Petite fleur gentile et jolie
que je serai malheureux si vous ne me dites de m'aimer.
Avec moi, vous pouvez vous attendre à plus,
car la situation me chagrine, ma douce amie.

Little flower, gentle and beautiful
alas, please tell me that you love me!
If you be with me, you will no longer have to wait…
But this, my sweet flower,
I can no longer bear.
