Helas, et quant vous veray?

3vv; rondeau
author of text

Helas, et quant vous veray? is a rondeau, but lacking any text beyond the first stanza. In this case we have not reconstructed anything, partly because its poetic metre (alternating lines of seven and three syllables) is not otherwise recorded in the fifteenth century.

Helas, et quant vous veray? est aussi un rondeau, mais dépourvu de texte au-delà de la première strophe. Dans ce cas, nous n’avons rien reconstruit, en partie parce que la métrique de la poésie (alternant des vers de sept et trois syllabes) n’est pas attestée par ailleurs au Xve siècle.

Helas, et quant vous veray? ist wiederum ein Rondeau, dem jedoch nach der ersten Strophe jeglicher Text fehlt. In diesem Falle haben wir nichts rekonstruiert, unter anderem, weil das Versmaß der Dichtung (alternierende Zeilen von sieben und drei Silben) sich sonst im 15. Jahrhundert nirgendwo findet.
