Quant ie suis ou les aultres sont
et que chascung maine grant ioye
alors fault il que ie larmoye
pour les doleurs que me deffont.

Modern French
Quand je suis où les autres sont
et que chacun mène grande joie,
alors il faut que je larmoie
pour les douleurs que me détruisent.

Whenever I am in company
with people living a great joy
I have no choice but to weep
over the pains that ruin me.
