Fleur de quinze ans

Language: French (Français)

Fleur de quinze ans, si Dieu vous sauve et gard,
J'ai en amour trouvé cinq points expres.
Premierement il y a le regard
Puis le devis et le baiser après,
L'attouchement suit le baiser de près,
Et tous ceux la tendent au dernier point,
Qui est, je ne le diray point ;
Mais s'il vous plait en ma chambre vous rendre,
Je me mettray volontiers en pourpoint,
Voire tout nud, pour le vous faire apprendre.

Flower aged 15 years

Language: English after the French (Français)

Flower aged 15 years, may God save & preserve you,
I have found in love 5 clear stages.
First there is the look
Then the assessment, and the kiss after that,
Touching follows closely after kissing,
And all those lead to the last stage,
Which is - - I shall certainly not say it;
But if you would like to come to my room,
I will willingly strip to my doublet,
Or even completely naked, to teach you...
