Original text
Ung doulx regard
ung parler amoureulx
puis ung baiser recue a la plaisance
sont les trois biens que font l'amant heureux
et parvenir au bout de ioyssance
o quel plaisir madame et souvenance
si lung des trois me donne seullement
car ung seul bien recue a la plaisance
vault mieulx que trois hors de contentement

Modern French
Un doux regard,
un parler amoureux,
un baiser à la plaisance
sont les trois biens qui rendent l'amoureux heureux
et parvenir au bout de jouissance.
O quel plaisir, madame, et quel souvenir!
Si vous me donniez qu'un seul de ces trois!
Car un seul bien reçu à la plaisance
vaut mieux que trois sans contentement.

English.png English translation

A sweet look,
an amorous word
and a kiss filled with pleasure,
those are the three gifts that make a lover happy
and make him climb the mountain of pleasure.
O what great joy, madam, and what fond memories,
should you but grant me one of those three!
Since one of them, received in pleasure
beats all three when awarded without consent.
