Sans avoir aultre contentement
belle de vous je me retire.
Servir ne vous puis si longuement
si aultre chose de vous ne tire.
Pour chant gecteray gemissement
et pour plaisir auray martire.

English.png English translation

I thought I did deserve you
but spurn I must your charms and take my leave.
No longer can I serve you:
you seemed to promise much, but did deceive.
I groan when I observe you:
My only pleasure now shall be to grieve.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
