Vo regard et doulce maniere
Me tiennent en si dur party,
Que brief de dueil seray party,
Se vous n'exaulcez ma priere.

Mieulx m'eust valu gesir en biere,
Quant premierement je choisy.
  Vo regard [et doulce maniere
  Me tiennent en si dur party.]

Car plus voy vostre belle chere
Dont nature vous a party,
Tant plus suis dolent et marry,
Quant du tout m'avez mis arriere.

  Vo regard [et doulce maniere
  Me tiennent en si dur party,
  Que brief de dueil seray party,
  Se vous n'exaulcez ma priere.]
