Available translation(s): ENG
Navré je sui d'un dart penetratif
Qui m'a percié le cuer de part en part;
C'est ma dame qui par son doulx regart
Aimable me l'a point jusques au vif.

Tout souellement, se confort n'est hastif,
En verité joye de moy depart.
  Navré [je sui d'un dart penetratif
  Qui m'a percié le cuer de part en part.]

Las, que feray? Se Dangier m'est actif,
J'auray Refus contre moy, main et tart.
Ne scay qui puist la pointure du dart
En moy garir senon le vray motif.

  Navré je sui [d'un dart penetratif
  Qui m'a percié le cuer de part en part;
  C'est ma dame qui par son doulx regart
  Aimable me l'a point jusques au vif.]

Sore wounded I am by a penetrating dart
Language: English  after the French (Français) 
Sore wounded I am by a penetrating dart
Which has pierced my heart from one side to the other;
It is my lady who by her sweet and friendly glance
Has struck me to the quick.

All alone, if comfort does not come quickly,
In truth my joy departs from me.
  Sore wounded I am by a penetrating dart
  Which has pierced my heart from one side to the other.

Ah, what shall I do? If the Pain of Love comes against me,
I shall have Refusal against me, short and sharp(?)
I do not know who can cure the wound of this dart
In me, unless the one who truly made it.

Sore wounded I am by a penetrating dart
Which has pierced my heart from one side to the other;
It is my lady who by her sweet and friendly glance
Has struck me to the quick.
