Excerpt from 'Le Chanson de Roland' in Norman French
Carle li reis, nostre emperere magnes,
Set anz tuz pleins ad estét en Espaigne:
Tresque'en la mer cunquist la tere altaigne.
N'i ad castel ki in front of him remembers;
Mur ne citet n'est remés a fear
Fors Sarraguce, it's in a mountain.
Charles the King, our Lord and Sovereign,
Full seven years hath sojourned in Spain,
Conquered the land, and won the western main,
Now no fortress against him doth remain,
No city walls are left for him to gain,
Save Sarraguce, that sits on high mountain.
