Et se li airs fust clers et purs, Je fusse ailleurs; mais si obscurs Estoit que montaingnes et pleins Estoient de bruines pleins. Et on le voit assez de fait, Ne riens tant cuer felon ne fait Com grant pooir qui mal en use. Tours, manieres, engiens, ou ars Pour pillier hardis et couars. Ce fu des orribles merveilles Seur toutes autres despareilles Dont homme puet avoir memoire, Car je ne truis pas en histoire Lisant nulles si mervilleuses, Si dures, ne si perilleuses De.
Et meint crestien ensement En morurent honteusement. En ce temps vint une maisnie De par leur dame Ypocrisie Qui de courgies se batoient Et adens se crucefioient En chantant de la lopinelle Ne say quelle chanson nouvelle, Et valoient miex par leurs dis Que sains qui soit en paradis. Et quant Nature vit ce fait Que son oeuvre einsi se desfait, Et que li homme se tuoient Et les yaues empoisonnoient Pour destruire humeinne lignie Par couvoitise et par envie, Moult en desplut la belle et gente, Moult se coursa, moult fu dolente.
Ci a mervilleuses nouvelles. Et ne gisoient que. Nuls ne faisoit les chans arer, Les blez soier, ne vingnes faire. Qui en donnast triple salaire, Non, certes, pour. Et quant je vi ces aventures Si diverses et si obscures, Je ne fui mie si hardis Que moult ne fusse acouardis. Nom pourquant, ce ne di je point; Eins y avoit. Si le me voloit pronuncier Pour li deduire et soulacier Et moy mettre en merencolie.
Einsi va son corps deduisant Toutes heures en bien faisant. Si fais estas donne couleur De maintenir homme en valeur. Mais je li osterai briefment Grant part de son esbatement, Car je li donrai a ruser, Pour li bonne piece muser. Et il, en signe de grant joie, Me salua de Dieu le pere Et de sa douce chiere mere.
Et je li respondi briefment En saluant courtoisement. Puis li demanday quels nouvelles Pour moy seront bonnes et belles, Se ma dame est preus et haitie, En pais, sans estre courrecie. Dont quant elle me manderoit, Ce seroit bien folie a croire Que point en vosisse recroire. Bel soient elles adjournees! La vous atent, soiez certeins. Or ne soit point vostres cuers teins De paour pour trop loing aler; Car la porrez a li parler. Vous y venrez assez a point Se ma dame y puet adrecier. A cheval a moy parlerez. Quant je fu la dessus montee En celle plus haute montee Mon chemin tenoie sus destre, Et je regardai vers senestre, Tout de plain vous vi chevauchier, Vos levriers siffler et huchier.
Tels ouevres faire vous ooie Tout aussi bien com je veoie Vous et vostre contenement. Dont je vous merci tellement Com je doy, et non autrement. Ma dame, je feroie envis Riens encontre vostre voloir. Et que me porroient valoir A faire tels menuz despis? Se vous donray assez a faire Et se vous ferai maint contraire Se pour confus ne vous rendez. Si doubtay si faite aventure. Se li respondi par avis. Or est en vostre entention Secretement mis en enclos.
Car la chose est einsi partie. Et quant dit le vous averay, En tel lieu le reprocheray Que vous en serez moult blasmez Et vers les dames diffamez. Et pour li miex enamourer Il maintenroit toute noblesse: Honneur, courtoisie, et largesse. Et celle, quant le saveroit, Demouroit lasse et esgaree, Loyal amie non amee. Mais il ira bien autrement. Puis le savera en loien De la mort ou il demourra Si que jamais ne le verra.
Guillaume, se vous tant valez, Vous le pouez bien einsi faire Par soustenir tout le contraire. Mais se je puis, je veinqueray; Se je ne puis, je soufferay. Or soit einsi fait par acort; Mais vous en ferez le recort Dou prendre tel que vous vorrez. Et nompourquant, vaille que vaille, Je nomme et pren celui qui rois Est appellez des Navarrois. De toute villenie est nus Et garnis de toute noblesse Qui apartient a gentillesse.
La avoit il un bel manoir Ou elle voloit remanoir. Et briefment tuit, grant et meneur, Li faisoient feste et honneur. Mais bien sambloit estre maistresse, Car elle fu par grant noblesse Entre coussins de soie assise. Et la veoit elle, sans doubte, La guise et la maniere toute, Comment Raison justement regle Par bele et bonne et loial regle. La tierce avoit nom Attemprance, Qui. Mais nette estoit, sans nul reproche, De cuer, de corps, de main, de bouche.
Bien savoit la cause des choses Qui sont ou firmament encloses, Pourquoy li solaus en ardure Se tient, et la lune en froidure; Des estoiles et des planettes Et des. Ad ce se tenoit. Noblesse li avoit apris. Et avec ce, dont miex la pris, Elle reprenoit Advarice Comme de tout le pieur vice. Hors estoit des mains de Fortune Et de son perilleus dangier. Quant je la vi si hautement Assise et si tres noblement De grans richesses acesmee, Et si servie et honnouree Chierement de tous et de toutes, Dedens mon cuer venirent doubtes Qui y entrerent par folie Et par droite merencolie.
Adont Raison me resgarda Si que depuis en sa garde a Mon cuer, mon sens, et mon penser, Pour resister et pour tenser Aus fausses cogitations Et oster les temptations Qui cuidoient avoir victoire A moy faire faussement croire. Or fui hors de celle pensee. Volentiers nous escouteront. Bien saveroit examiner Et encor miex determiner. Levez vous, car il plaist a nous Que plus ne parlez a genous.
Car qui voit personne en la face Qui de parler doit avoir grace, Le parler trop miex en entent A quel fin sa parole tent. Et comment elle fu crueuse De moy rudement ramposner Pour moy seulement agoner Et en merencolie mettre, Dont bel se savoit entremettre. Que vous iroie je comptant? Pour quel cause ne vous tenistes En vostre siege toute coie?
Mais laissons ces parlers ester. Petit y devons arrester. Encor fais je trop, ce me samble. Et se prenez vostre apetit A diligenment escouter Ce que je vous vorray compter. Vez la Guillaume de Machaut. Or avenra il que la mort, Qui soutilment sus la gent mort, Torra a son ami la vie. Pour ce volons que vous soiez Juges; si en ordonnerez Selonc le plait que vous orrez. Car a. Or prenez cui que vous volez, Par quoy de riens ne vous dolez. Si entendra les parlemens Pour raporter aus jugemens.
En tel lieus est souvent ses sieges Quant elle se vuet reposer. La est devouree et deffaite. Et cils puet trouver moult de fais Aus quels il se puet encliner Pour son mal faire terminer, Par pluseurs manieres de tours. Dont elle sent pour. Car de sa bouche est descendu En vostre cuer par escouter; Si ne le faut pas repeter. On puet bien sa cause prisier Sans autrui fait apetisier.
Car qui languist, il ne vit mie. Je me merveil que vous pensastes Quant vous en fustes si hastis: Ou vostres scens est trop petis, Ou outrecuidiers vous demeinne. Ne savez vous pas bien qui mainne Le droit quant parties y tendent Qui le desirent et attendent? De ce ne faites nulles doubtes, Que drois ne se puet delivrer, Se toutes ne sont au livrer, Afin que fait soit bonnement, Se cils qui fist les drois ne ment.
Et se la chose est en bon point, Je la puis garder en ce point. Vous avez. Voir, ce seroit folie. Que vous yroie je comptant? Chascune son remede enseigne. Or ne poons a ce point traire De ceste maladie cy Tant seulement que par un sy. Car si hastives maladies Puelent venir de.
Je le lo einsi et conseil. Se voit li uns tout simplement Parler a li secretement. Mais vueilliez vous bien entremettre De li garder et tenir pres. A Dieu vous commant, douce dame! Elle fu de la gent criee, Et sa mere en fu tourmentee. Bien le sachiez! Aussi a morir avoit elle: Nuls contre ce point ne rebelle Cui la mort ne veingne haper; Nuls ne li porroit eschaper. La est il de foy en destour Pour renoier son creatour; Volentiers le renieroit Qui de la le delivreroit.
Car uns autres poins le vous tost. Vous avez de Nature trait Pour prouver. Et pour ceci le vous propos, Car il sert bien a mon propos. Dont elle morut a dolour Pour amer, et par sa folour. Mais elle ne morut pas seule, Einsois a. Einsi fina Dydo sa vie. Commande; assez nous le volons. Et par si faite fole emprise Sont fait maint incouvenient Qui valent trop meins que nient. Si me garderay de mesprendre. Mais je vueil ma cause deffendre Tant avant, comme je porray. A Orliens ot. De gentils gens estoit servis, Preus et apers a grant devis, Et avoit en sa compaingnie De moult noble chevalerie, A qui riches robes donnoit.
Cils poins moult bien li avenoit, Car pour sa grace desservir Se penoient de lui servir. Il les prist, si les resgarda Et de haut lire se garda, Car pluseurs secrez devisoient. Mors, que ne me viens tu prendre? A po que je ne me vois pendre! Mais par force leur eschapa. Mais il ne faisoit a nelui Nul mal, fors seulement a lui. En ce point fu. Si fu bien mis de haut au bas.
Quant il vous plaist, si resgardez, Et de mesjugier vous gardez! Aussi de vostre conscience Avez vous presentement dit De ces lettres par vostre dit Que plus secrez contenoient. Or ne scet on dont il venoient. Je vous vueil dire une merveille. Trop miex conter la saverez, Pour certein, que je ne feroie. Car de. Uns riches homs ha. Celle damoiselle jolie Qui estoit a ce clerc amie. La pot estre si eslevee Et de branches si estendue Et de fueilles si bien vestue, De fleurs si cointement paree, Comme estre aus milleurs comparee. Si me vueil. Vraiement, il y parut bien Quant Bonne Amour li volt souffrir, Son corps a tel martire offrir.
Se vous dirai raison comment. Quant en. De dame qui savera mort Son amy, sera plus cent tans En. Si vueil faire. Or est dont li commencemens De quoy vient li enragemens. Lors fu li vers fors esrachiez; Et quant il fu a plain sachiez, Les mains celui prist a lechier Cui il ot senti atouchier; Et fu la garis de tous poins. Dont mes drois est assez prouvez Et vostres grans tors reprouvez. Et les mist tous pour cest outrage Minos en si mortel servage, Que tous les ans li envoient. Car li rois Minos devourer Le faisoit la sans demourer Par un moustre trop mervilleus, Trop felon, et trop perilleus.
Il se menti, li renoiez. Pour quoy ne fu en mer noiez? Quant sa besongne ot assevie, Il les charga en sa navie. Pelie occist a grant desroy, Et tout, pour Jason faire roy. Et quant elle sot la nouvelle, Qui ne li fu plaisant ne belle, Elle fu si desesperee, Si hors dou sens, si forsenee, Que.
Et si a de remedes cent Li homs tels que fame ne sent. Ne je ne donroie. Li bons Lancelos et Tristans Eurent plus de peinne. Et li chevaliers, qui estoit Tous siens, bonnement li promist, Et la dame en son doy le mist. Et ne demeure pas seur voie, Car mon signeur le vuet avoir Sans nul essoinne recevoir.
Puet on faire plus loiaument Riens, ne plus amoureusement? Certes, nennil! On scet bien que la Chastelainne Fu morte pour. Car il dist toute leur besongne A la Duchesse de Bourgoingne. Quant pour bien ont de guerre don. Car il y avoit. Mais toute ceste compaingnie Tient le contraire et le vous nie. Si que je vous lo et conseil Que plus ne parlez sans conseil; Car vous estes trop juenes homs Pour dire si faites raisons.
Mais li juges, qui sagement Voloit faire son jugement, Tantost leur imposa silence, Fors seulement a Souffissance Et a Doubtance de meffaire. Et lors prist Doubtance a retraire. Mais Leandus toutes les nuis Passoit le bras de mer au large, Tous nus, seuls, sans nef et sans barge. Car il voit la mer si orrible Que de passer est impossible.
Et de sa tempeste et son bruit Toute la region en bruit. Et certes, ce fu grans damages, Car moult estoit vaillans et sages. Elle vorroit bien estre morte Quant son dous amy tant demeure. Dou cuer souspire, des yex pleure; La nuit ot plus de mil pensees, Par. Elle ne fait que reclamer Nepturnus, le dieu de la mer, Et li promet veaus et genices, Oblations et sacrefices Mais que la mer face cesser Par quoy Leandus puist passer.
Et pour ce je vous lo, Guillaume, Que cils debas soit en deport, Car vraiement, vous avez tort. Eins la doit pronuncier le juge, Qui a point et loyaument juge. Et comment? Et plus va a Amour tirant Cils qui preste que cils qui rant. Si que, ma chiere damoiselle, Qui moult amez honneur la belle, Vous devez bien, a dire voir, De ce cop ci honneur avoir. Sires juges, jugiez atant Que sentence sera rendue. Je suis de moult bonne attendue Pour attendre vostre jugier Quant il vous en plaira jugier. Et vous conseilliez tout a trait. Faire ne pouez plus biau trait Que de traitablement attraire Bon conseil et puis de retraire Les articles dou jugement, Selonc le nostre entendement, En gardant toudis nostre honneur.
Faire le devez, mon signeur. Tantost son conseil acueilly, Et puis de la se departirent. Si doy moult bien examiner Trestout le fait par ordenence Qui appert en notre audience Afin que loiaument en juge. Einsi doivent faire bon juge. Et vous vous devez travillier De moy loyaument consillier. Or avez de. Se jugerez en bon endroit. Qui vuet, si en die. Faites le, si ferez que sages. Et de moy qui sui sa compaingne Entendez que je vous enseingne. Vous le pouez bien commander. De son damage li souveingne.
Il ala avant par rigueur, Et se mist tout sa vigueur Pour lui deffendre encontre li. Pour bien sa cause soustenir; Eins est assez pour li punir. Car on se puet trop miex passer De ce dont on puet respasser. Mais qui tout vorroit deviser, Trop y averoit a viser. Et sus ceste devision Il fait une allegation, Pour prouver par. Dont cils plais desire a sentir De droit conclusion hastive Par sentence diffinitive, Pour ce qui est bien pris parfaire Et ce qui est mal pris deffaire.
Mais je croy que vous estes, telz Que vous ne le deingneries faire. La les tient elle en moult grant point. Elle est a tous biens mettre a point. Elle est de tous les biens acointe. Elle appert en mains esbanois, Tant en joustes comme en tournois, Pour chevalerie essaucier Et les fais des bons avancier A la congnoissance des dames. La croist honneur; la chiet diffames. La tient elle honneur en ses mains. La se vuet elle reposer Et les cuers a point disposer En la vie contemplative. Que vous iroie je contant?
Et de vostre erreur tous les poins. Se vous pri que vous en soiez Diligens de moy delivrer, Quant a ma sentence livrer. Or soiez aussi diligens, Et puis maintenant vous levez Pour faire ce que vous devez Vers celui qui pour juge siet. Lors pris mes gans, si li tendi; Dont il qui bien y entendi Les prist, et puis si les laissa. Se je voloie sa coronne Deviser, qui est belle et bonne, Trop longuement vous en tenroie; Car je voy bien la droite voie Que leur consaus va a declin. Atant pais de ce vous declin. Il vous couvient, chose est certeinne, Faire. Je fais ci ma conclusion.
Et Diex pais et honneur li doint Et de paradis la grant joie Tele que pour moy la voudroie. Pour la paier vueil sans delay Commencier. And so I sheltered indoors. For all that ordinarily was all green Had been changed into another hue Because the north wind had robbed everything of color, Cutting down many a flower With the coldness of its sword. John the Hermit; How the lords pillage their subjects, Rob, despoil, and mistreat them, Put them all to death Without pity or compassion So that great misfortune, I think, Comes from joining vice and power.
And one indeed often sees just this, And nothing makes a heart so criminal As great power when used for evil. Now I witness everyone abusing it Because I see no powerful man Without ten, now twenty, now a hundred Towers, troops, catapults, or arbalests To despoil brave men and cowards. They have no desire to rob men like these, For the man with nothing does not interest them. Such men are never troubled, But the greedy have a failing, which is that The more they have, the more they want, And the more powerfully rich they are, They are that much more greedy and miserly, For the burning avarice feeding on them Grows younger the longer they live.
But what grieves me more To endure, and troubles me more too, Is that God is accorded little reverence And that there is no order to anything; And today everyone ruins himself With what is called vituperation. Therefore, more than I dare say, Melancholy had taken hold of me, But whoever knew the half of it Would think much less of me. And then another thought occurred To me because it is proven folly For any man to be saddened By something he cannot better; And I determined that if the weather Were even ten times worse, Even a hundred times, or truly a hundred thousand, There would be no counsel wiser Than to let all this be Since it cannot be changed, And instead to act like the wise man Who says and demonstrates in his writing That, when he has considered everything, Imagined everything, seen all there is, Tested, examined, observed The world, it is all vanity, And there is no other course But to be happy and do good.
And just as I was at the point of Abandoning the reverie I was in, A thought occurred to me Even more bizarre and frightening, More troubling by half And much more filled with sadness. This was of those horrible, uncanny events Unlike the others That anyone might remember, Since in reading history I have not Discovered any so unusual, So hard to bear, or so threatening By a fourth or even a tenth part As these of my own time have been.
For it has been a rather common occurrence That the sun and the moon, the stars, The sky and earth have been seen Displaying the signs of war, Misery, and pestilence, Offering tokens and manifestations, For everyone could see with his own eyes Eclipses of the moon and sun Much fuller and darker Than others had been for many years past, And as a sign of misfortune these two bodies lost For a long time their color and light. Furthermore, there was a star with tresses That seemed to be fire with a tail, And it prognosticated Murder and conflagration.
The heavens, which saw from their heights The evil fortune to come Into the world, wept in many places And cried tears of blood from pity, And because of the strange rain issuing from them, The earth trembled with fear So said several who saw this , Because of which villages and cities were destroyed In Germany and Carinthia, Somewhat more than forty altogether, Although I cannot tell their exact number. But the event is well known in Rome Because an abbey there Of St. But the Lord who made everything Through His direct intervention, Like a sovereign gracious ruler Over all things, showed us the meaning Of these marvelous tokens And dispelled our doubts So directly and properly That every man saw it clearly.
For the battles and the wars Were so great throughout every land That no one knew in all the world, As much as it encompasses, Any country, kingdom, or region Where there was no strife; For this reason five hundred thousand men and women Would have lost their bodies and souls If He who is in harmony with all good Had not taken pity on them, And many countries were destroyed by it, And the results endure still.
The story would be long to tell About captures and outrages, The savage killings as well Of noblemen and knights, Of clerks, townspeople, squires, And of poor people of little note Who died as a result or were brought to ruin, Of the kings, dukes, lords, and counts, For so many of them perished in this way, Some by fire, others in war, That everyone was completely confounded by it. After this appeared a group of scoundrels Who were false, traitorous, and heretical: This was shameful Judea, The evil, the disloyal, Who hate good and love evil of all kinds, Who gave and promised so much Gold and silver to the Christian people That they in many places Poisoned the wells, streams, and fountains That had been clear and healthy, And so many lost their lives Because all who used them Died quite suddenly, and in this way Ten times a hundred thousand certainly Perished in the countryside and towns as well Before this deadly affliction Was taken notice of.
But He who sits on high and sees far, Who governs everyone and provides all things, Did not wish for this treason To be hidden any longer; instead He revealed And made it known so widely They lost their lives and goods. At this time a company came together At the urging of Hypocrisy, their lady, And these people beat themselves with whips And crucified themselves flat on the ground While singing to a catchy tune Some new song or other; And according to them they were worthier Than any saint in Paradise.
But the Church dealt with them By forbidding them to whip themselves And condemning their song, Which little children were singing, And by excommunicating all of them Through the power granted it by God Because their self-abuse And song were heresy. And when Nature saw what was happening, That her work was in these ways destroying itself And men were killing each other And poisoning the waters In order to annihilate the human race Because of greed and envy, She, beautiful and noble, was much displeased, Quite vexed, greatly pained.
So she made her way without delay To Jupiter and had forged Lightning, thunder, and storms On working days and feasts. Because she was so eager for the task, She paid no mind to either weekday or holiday. For when she saw her works destroyed, She wished the air corrupted as well. And when the winds had taken their leave And Jupiter had forged everything, Lightning, storms, and turbulence, Then one might have seen them Marvelously disperse in all directions And thunder quite horribly, Blow in gusts, let fall hail and rain in torrents, Disturb the clouds, the sea, Shake the woods, make the rivers flood, And force all things that live On the earth to seek shelter To save themselves because they feared death.
This turn of events was quite remarkable, Terrifying, and filled with peril! But no one could have survived Had this weather lasted long, And so these storms came to an end, But they gave rise to such haze, Such filth, and such vapors As were hardly loved; For the air that had been clear and pure Was now vile, black, and cloudy, Horrible and fetid, putrefied and infected; And so it became completely corrupted; And about this corruption Men held the view It was corrupting them in turn And they were thus losing their health.
For everyone was badly afflicted, Discolored, and made ill; People had buboes and large swellings From which they died, and, to be brief, Few dared to venture into the open air Or talk at close quarters with one another Because their infected breath Corrupted others who were healthy. And if anyone fell ill, And some friend visited him, That man faced the same peril From which five hundred thousand died So that father failed son, Mother failed daughter, Son and daughter failed mother From fear of this plague; And no one was so true a friend He was not thereupon ignored, The recipient of little help If he fell ill with the disease.
And there was no physician or healer Who knew enough to name the cause Of its appearance, or even what it was And none of them applied any remedy , Beyond that this was a disease One called an epidemic. When from His house God saw That the corruption in the world Was this great everywhere, It is no wonder He was eager To take a cruel revenge For the great disorder; And so at once, waiting no longer, In order to have His justice and vengeance, From his cage He released Death, Full of rage and anger And lacked any check, bridle, or rein, Any faith, love, or moderation, So very proud and arrogant he was, So gluttonous and famished He could not be satisfied By anything he could consume.
And he hastened throughout the world, Killing and running down one and all, Whomever he chanced upon, Nor could he be resisted. And, in short, he undid so many, Struck down and devoured so great a multitude That every day could be found Huge heaps of women, youths, Boys, old people, those of all degrees, Lying dead inside the churches; And they were thrown together In great trenches, all dead from the buboes.
Because the cemeteries were found to be So full of corpses and biers It was necessary to lay out new ones. These were strange new tidings. And so there was many a fine town Where no boy or girl, no man or woman Was seen to come and go, Nor was anyone found there to talk to Because all of them had died This unbelievable death. And they lay ill no more than three days, Sometimes less; the time was short. And there were certainly many Who died of it suddenly; For those same men who bore them To the church did not return This was often witnessed , But instead were to die right there.
And whoever wished to undertake Discovering or putting down in writing The number of those who died, Those who are still here and once were, And all those to come, Never would he be able to compass it, However hard he might labor. For no one could count them, Imagine, conceive, or tell of them, Compute, make known, or record them. Oui et non. Ces maux sont les risques de pertes attendus avec incertitude.
