XXXVII

Sung

The valiant and honest Nicole
touched the shore.
She saw the walls, the dwellings,
the palaces, the halls;
She lamented her fortune thus:
"What bad luck that I am from a noble family,
that I am the King of Carthage's daughter,
and the emir's cousin!
In this place they took me away from barbarians.
Noble and honest Aucassin,
young lord full of generosity and honor,
the sweetness of your love drives me,
plagues me, torments me.
Would mighty God the spiritual father allow me
to hold you in my arms again
for you to kiss my face,
my mouth, my visage,
my young lord."
