D'où vient cela, belle, je vous supply,
que plus à moy ne vous me recommandez,
tousjours seray de tristesse remply,
jusques à tant qu'au vray le me mandez,
tousjours je croy que plus d'amy ne demandez
ou mauvais bruit de moy on vous revelle
ou vostre coeur a fait amour nouvelle.

English.png English translation

What reason be, my Fair, I do entreat,
That you no longer seem to hear my plea?
With sadness shall my life e’er be replete
Until such time as you do answer me:
No more, methinks, do I seem Friend to thee
For either ill of me someone hath spoke,
Or to another love your heart awoke.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
