Al matin

Poem (Canso): 

Al matin, quant la soleil est levé
Et je voi m’amor et la bele figure,
Je pleur, aveuglé de la douz beauté.
Ele resplendt plus bele que n’est aventure!
Proi que a nos retorne la nuit obscure.
Quant est calme, et ne serai écrasé
Nos adorerons d’amor le bordure.


In the morning, when the sun is risen,
And I see my love and her beautiful face,
I weep, blinded by her sweet beauty.
She shines fairer than is possible!
I pray that the shadowy night will return to us.
When it is quiet, and I am not so overwhelmed,
We will worship the very extremes of love.
