The monk Gausbert de Poicibot was a noble man from the bishopric of Limoges, son of a castellan of Poichibot. And he was put into holy orders when he was a child, in a monastery called Saint Lunart. And he was well versed in letters and knew how to sing and how to invent poetry well.
And desiring a woman, he left the monastery and went to the one to whom all those who wished honor and kindness in exchange for courtesy came, Lord Savaric de Mauleon. And he gave him a minstrel’s equipment, clothing, and horses. So he then went around the courts and invented and wrote good songs.
And he fell in love with a noble and beautiful damsel and composed his songs about her. And she did not want to love him unless he became a knight and married her. And he told Lord Savaric how the lady refused him. So Lord Savaric knighted him and gave him land and rent, and he took the damsel for his wife and greatly honored her.
And then it happened that he went to Spain, and the damsel stayed. And a knight from England fell in love with her and did and said so much that he managed to take her away and had her for a long time as his mistress, and then he abandoned her in a wicked way.
And when Gausbert returned from Spain, he stayed for an evening in the city where she was. And when evening came, he went out desiring a woman and entered the dwelling of a poor woman, for he had been told that there was a beautiful damsel inside. And he came upon his own wife. And when he saw her, and she saw him, they both felt great pain and great shame. He stayed with her that night, and the following morning he left with her and took her to a convent, which he made her enter. And because of this pain, he stopped inventing poems and singing. And here are some of his songs.
