Aucassin and Nicolette
As soon as Aucassin heard
of his friend with the luminous face
that she had come to the country,
he was filled with such joy as he had never before known.
He followed the lady
without stopping up to her house.
There they are in the chamber
where Nicolette was seated.
The sight of her friend
filled her with such joy as she had never before known.
As soon as Aucassin saw her,
he took her in his arms,
held her gently against him,
kissed her eyes and her face.
When night fell, they took leave of her
until the next morning
when Aucassin married her
and made her the Lady of Beaucaire.
Then they led
a long and happy life.
Now that Aucassin and Nicolette
have found happiness,
our story is done,
and I have nothing left to say.
