Original text
Petite fleur coincte’et jolye
Las dictes moy si vous m’aimes
Avecque moy plus m’attendes
Car il m’ennuye, ma doulce amye.

Modern French
Petite fleur, souriante et jolie,
dites-moi si vous m'aimez.
Avec moi, vous n'attendrez plus,
car je m'ennuie, ma douce amie.

Little flower, dainty and fine,
Alack, tell me if you love me!
With me delay no more, I plea,
For it vexes me, sweet love of mine.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
