Languir me fais sans t'avoir offensée,
Plus ne m'escriptz, plus de moy ne t'enquiers,
Mais nonobstant aultre Dame ne quiers:
Plus tost mourir, que changer ma pensée.

Je ne dy pas t'amour estre effacée,
Mais je me plainds de l'ennuy que j'acquiers,
Et loing de toy humblement te requiers
Que loing de moy, de moy ne sois faschée.

English.png English translation

You make me pine away, without me having offended you.
You don't write to me any more, don't ask after me.
But nevertheless I don't want anyone else but you, my lady:
I'd rather die than change my mind.

Translation by Dick Wursten

Jij laat me smachten, zonder dat ik je iets aangedaan heb,
Je schrijft me niet meer, je vraagt niet meer naar mij,
Maar nochtans begeer ik geen ander:
Eerder sterf ik dan van gedachte te veranderen.
Translation by Dick Wursten
Ik zeg niet dat jouw liefde is vervlogen,
Maar ik beklaag me het lange wachten dat mijn deel is,
En ver van jou, in nederigheid verzoek ik je,
zo ver van mij, wees mij niet slecht gezind.

Translation by Jan Wyns

German.png German translation

Du lässt mich schmachten, ohne dass ich Dich beleidigt hätte:
Du schreibst mir nich, erkeundigst Dich nicht nach mir.
Dennoch suche ich keine andere:
Eher würde ich sterben als meine Meinung zu ändern.

Ich sage nicht Deine Liebe sei verlöscht,
aber ich beklage die Langeweile, die ich erworben habe
und weit von Dir, bescheiden bitte ich Dich,
so weit von mir, sei mir nicht böse.

Translation by Gerhard Weick
