lyrics

Text from Christine de Pisan, translated from old french by Muriel Kittle

Hé lune! trop luis longuement,
Par toy pers les biens doucereux
Qu’Amours donne aux vrais amoureux.

Ta clarté nuit trop durement
A mon cuer qui est desireux,
Hé lune! trop luis longuement.

Car tu fais le decevrement
De moy et du doulz savoureux;
Nous ne t’en savons gré tous deux,
Hé lune! trop luis longuement.

Ah moon, you shine too long,
You do the honeyed joys remove,
Given true lovers by Love.

Your brightness does much wrong
My heart, desiring love;
Ah moon, you shine too long.

For you are too revealing
Of me and the sweets of love;
Neither of us grateful prove,
Ah moon, you shine too long
