“Entre Paris et Saint Dennie (Between Paris and Saint Dennie)”


French. The king's son asks a shepherdess to sing. She would sing if not for her sorrow at losing her brother and husband in the war. He asks which she regrets more. She says she will find another husband but will never have a brother.


The shepherdess's answer is reminiscent of Lady Margaret's plea in Child 7: "True lovers I can get many a ane, But a father I can never get mair." - BS
