Original text and translations

French.png French text

Ton gentil corps en beauté souveraine,
au temps passé, si Paris eut pu voir,
n'eut estimé de Venus le pouvoir,
qui luy donna joyssance de Helaine.

Modern French
Si Paris eut pu voir ton gentil corps,
en beauté souveraine au temps passé,
il n’eut estimé de Venus,
le pouvoir qui lui donna la jouissance d’Hellène.

If in the old days,
Paris could have seen your sovereign beauty,
he would have laughed at Venus's offer
to enjoy Helen's pleasures.
