Original text and translations

French.png French text

Las, il fauldra qu'ung estrangier la maine
pour la garder le surplus de son âge
et nous laissant au partir pour ostage,
partez en nuys, regretz, soucy et paine.

Modern French
Hélas, il faudra qu’un étranger la mène (gouverne)
pour la garder, vu son âge,
et nous laisser une caution (?).
Partez ennuis, regrets, souci et peine.

English.png English translation

Alas, she will have to be entrusted to a stranger now,
to keep an eye on her, given her age,
so henceforth we are kept hostage as we go out,
why won't you leave me, sorrows, pain and discomfort?
