De mon triste desplaisir
a vous, belle, je m'y complains,
car vous traictes mal mon desir,
si durement que je m'y plains.
Entre vos mains
souffre maulx mains
sans nul confort.
dont sur ma foy,
comme aperçoy,
vous avez tort.

Of my sadness and displeasure,
to you, fair one, I complain,
for you treated my longing badly,
so harshly that I weep.
By your hands,
I suffer ill,
without any comfort.
Thus, by faith,
as I perceive it,
you are wrong.
