Original text and translations

French.png French text

Je suis joyeux et languis en tristesse.
Je suis dolent et rempli de liesse.
Je suis tout gay et chargé de soucis.
Ce sont amours qui me font tout ceci.
J'ai de tout bien et de tout mal largesse.

English.png English translation

I am joyful and wallow in despair.
I am wretched and feel light as air.
I am worry-free and freighted with fuss.
It’s my love affairs that have made me thus.
I’m rich with all things foul and all things fair.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
