French Old (842-ca.1400) to English translations [Non-PRO] Art/Literary - Music / lyrics
French Old (842-ca.1400) term or phrase:retollir
I have an old French song from the 14th century by Machaut that I need to figure out. I understand most of it, but there are a few words that are problematic, e.g. retollir.
Would appreciate any help on this!
Here are the lyrics:
Dame, a vous sans retollir
Dong cuer, pensee, desir,
Corps, et amour,
Comme a toute la millour
Qu'on puist choisir,
Ne qui vivre ne morir
Puist a ce jour.
