The setting here is in 5/4. Literal translation (AJ):
1. Plaintive turtledove, Who is always cooing, Would you lend me your wing To serve my loves!
2. Like you, unfortunate lover, Far from my dove I cry and lament Unable to forget her.
3. Fly and may your pink foot On a tree or a tower Never rests For I am lovesick.
4. Go straight to her window Near the king’s palace, Give her this letter And two kisses from me.
5. Then on my bosom in flame That can’t calm down, Come back with her soul, Come back to rest.
