Diepe ghepeijs en swaer versuchten

Language: Middle Dutch (Middelnederlands)

Diepe ghepeys en swaer versuchten,
Heijmlijck lijden lijd ick voertaen.
Ick mach wel claghen, stenen en suchten,
Want mij gaet druck en lijden aen.
Mijn sinnekens verstroijen, mijn ghepeys vaert henen
Wee haer, die mij versuchten doet.
Ick en can, ick en mach mij selven niet ontwenen,
Eens anders eijgen, mijn selfs onvrij goet.

Diepe gedachten en hevig verlangen

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the Middle Dutch (Middelnederlands)

Diepe gedachten en hevig verlangen,
Heimelijk lijden heb ik te verduren vanaf nu.
Ik kan wel klagen, kreunen en zuchten,
Want ik wordt gekweld door verdriet en leed.
Mijn verstand is verward, mijn gedachten tollen in het rond:
Wee haar die mij doet zuchten!
Ik kan, ik mag mijzelf er niet aan onttrekken:
Ik ben bezit van iemand anders en niet van mijzelf.
