d'une chanson médiéval

A quote from the Crusades and the song Ahi, Amours! com dure departie ...

"Oh, Love! How hard it will be for me to have to leave the best woman who was ever loved or served! May God, in his kindness, lead me back to her as surely as I leave her in sorrow. Alas! What have I said? I am not really leaving her at all! If my body is going off ... my heart remains entirely within her sway"

- Conon de Bethune
(II. 1-80)
