Toutes les nuitz que sans vous je me couche,
Pensant à vous ne fay que sommeiller,
Et en revant jusques au resveiller
Incessemment vous quiers parmi la couche,
Et bien souvent au lieu de vostre bouche
En soupirant je baise l'oreiller.

Every night that I sleep without you,
Thinking of you makes me want only to slumber,
So as to dream of you until awakening
Seeking you incessantly in the bed,
And often in place of your mouth
With a sigh I kiss the pillow.
