Amour m’a le cuer mis en tel martire
Que mayntes fois le jour mon corps tressue
Et souvent fois pense et souvent sospire,
Souvent me cange la colour et se mue:
En tel estat ma vie est tenue.
Pour ce n’est il pas del tout a sejour,
Celli qui est sourpris de fin amour.
Anthonello de Caserta (fl1390-1410)
Love has set my heart in such torment
that many times a day I tremble,
and often I muse and often I sigh,
often my colour changes and fades:
such is the state my life is in.
This is why there is no respite at all
for him who is smitten by true love.
