J'ay eu congé sans l'avoir mérité,
dont je me sens plein de perplexité,
car à tousjours ay perdu ma maistresse.
Pour ses vertus digne d'être princesse
si elle n'eust, faulte de charité.

Modern French
J'ai eu congé sans l'avoir mérité,
dont je me sens plein de perplexité,
car à toujours j'ai perdu ma maîtresse.
Pour ses vertus digne d'être princesse
si elle n'avait pas manqué de charité.

I have been dumped while I didn't deserve it,
I can hardly believe
that I have lost my mistress for ever.
Her virtues would have made a princess out of her
had she not lacked in charity.
