Old French
Si ton amour ne gist fort en ton oeil
penser ie puis que las clos pour dormir.
Et que par ce plus nas de souvenir
dung qui pour toy vit en pain'et en deuil.

modern French
Si l'amour ne se montre pas dans ton oeuil,
je pense que tu l'as fermé pour dormir,
et que par cela, tu n'as plus aucun souvenir
d'un (homme) qui subit la peine et le deuil pour toi.

English.png English translation

If your love appears not in your eye,
Perchance you are asleep and that is all,
And that is why you now no more recall
Your would-be lover, who for pain does sigh.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
