Doleo super te, Absolon,
fili mi amabilis super amorem mulierum,
sicut mater unicum amat filium
ita te diligebam.

English.png English translation

I mourn for you, Absalon,
my son, beloved above the love of women,
I loved you as a mother loves her only son.

German.png German translation

Ich empfinde Schmerz über dich, Abschalom,
mein Sohn, liebenswerter als die Liebe der Frauen;
wie eine Mutter ihren einzigen Sohn liebt,
so liebte ich dich.
