Original text and translations

French.png French text

Vous perdez temps de me dire du mal d’elle,
gens qui voulez divertir mon entente.
Plus la blâmez, plus je la trouve belle.
S’ébahit-on, sit tant je m’en contente?
 La fleur de sa jeunesse,
 À votre avis, rien n’est-ce?
 N’est-ce rien de ses grâces?
 Cessez vos grandes audaces,
Car mon amour vaincra votre médire,
Tel en médit, qui pour soi la désire.

English.png English translation

You waste your time maligning her to me,
All you who wish to foil my intent:
The more you chide, the more her charms I see;
Why be amazed that I am so content?
The flower of her youth
No value hath, in truth?
Her beauty’s but a stunt?
Cease now your great affront,
For my true love will conquer your disdain:
It masks your thirst for what you can’t obtain.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
