kalenda maya (the first of may)

Kalenda maya the first of May
Ni fuels de faya neither leaf of beech
Ni chanz d'auzelh nor song of bird
Ni flors de glaya nor flower of sword lily
Non es que'm playa pleases me
Pros domna guaya lady noble and gay
Tro qu'un ysnelh until I receive
Messatgier aya a speedy messenger
Del vostre belh from your fair self
Cors, que'm retraya who will tell me
Plazer novelh the new delight
Qu'Amors m'atraya which love brings me


Things haven't changed that much from 12th century Provence.
or, my setiments exactly, or something. :) More here...
