Original poem and translation:

1._Mignonne allons voir si la rose Qui ce matin avait déclose Sa robe de pourpre au soleil, A point perdu cette vêprée, Les plis de sa robe pourprée, Et son teint au vôtre pareil.

2._Las! voyez comme en peu d’espace, Mignonne, elle a dessus la place Las! las! ses beautés laissé choir! O vraiment marâtre Nature! Puisqu’une telle fleur ne dure Que du matin jusques au soir!

3._Donc, si vous me croyez, mignonne, Tandis que votre âge fleuronne En sa plus verte nouveauté, Cueillez, cueillez votre jeunesse: Comme à cette fleur la vieillesse Fera ternir votre beauté.

Translation (AJ): 1._Darling, let’s go and see if the rose That had opened this morning Its robe of crimson in the sun, Has kept this evening The folds of its purple robe And its complexion to yours alike.

2._Alas! see how in such a short space, Darling, it has over the place Alas! alas! its charms dropped! O truly cruel mother nature! Because such a flower only lasts From the morn to the eve!

3._Thus, if you trust me, darling, While your age still blooms In its greenest novelty, Gather, gather your youth: Like to this flower, old age Will tarnish your beauty.
