Puis que de vous je n'ay aultre visage,
Je m'en vois rendre hermite en ung desert,
Pour prier dieu, si ung aultre vous sert,
Qu'aultant que moy en vostre honneur soit sage.

A dieu Amours, adieu gentil corsage,
Adieu ce tainct, adieu ces frians yeux :
Je n'ay pas heu de vous grand adventage :
Ung moins aymant aura, peult estre, mieulx.

Since you’ll not turn again to me your eye,
A hermit in a desert I shall be,
To pray that if some other man serves thee,
He’ll honor you e’en half as well as I.

Goodbye to Love, goodbye that shapely thigh,
Goodbye that face, goodbye that saucy glance:
My time with you did not full satisfy:
A love less keen might have a better chance.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
