D'une coline m'y proumenant par la plu vert' gay plu gaye saizon.
Quand toute chose rid au chams, je voy une rôze vermeilléte.
Qui toute fleuréte de fleur de beauté passe de bien loin.
Je la voy de loin, et je l'aime fort, je la veu cueillir, et la main j'y tous, mais las c'est en vain.
Je la voy de loin, et je l'aime fort, je la veu cueillir, et la main j'y tens, mais las c'est en vain.

Translation by Ifor Jones
From a hill, I am walking here in the greenest and gayest season.
When everything ripples in the fields, I see a rose of reddest hue.
Which all the flowering blooms of beauty it far exceeds.
I see it from afar and I love it greatly. I want to pick it and I try to pick it, but in vain.
I see it from afar and I love it greatly. I want to pick it and my hand tries to hold it, but in vain.
