When Aucassin heard Nicolette say that she would pass into a far country, he was all in wrath.
Nicolette is but a toy, Castaway from Carthagen, Bought a slave of heathen men.
When Nicolette heard Aucassin singing, she came into the bower, and threw her arms around his neck and kissed him.
Nicolette was in prison, as you have harkened and heard, in the chamber.
And the cry and the noise went through all the land and through all the country that Nicolette was lost.
Nicolette cares not for this, For she loves a lording lad, Aucassin to name he had.
And as she took leave of him, he fell weeping for the sweetness of Nicolette.
Besides, Nicolette and Roland would love her; he was sure of it.
Nicolette took leave of the herd-boys, and went into the forest down a green way that led to a place where seven paths met.
Then Aucassin went to the captain that was godfather to Nicolette.
