En Raimon, be·us tenc a grat
Car aissi·us vei acordat
De gent captener en Bernat
Celha que non respós en fat
Al malastruc Caersinat
Que·l mostrèt son còrn en privat:
Celh lo soanet per foldat,
E ieu lai vòlgr' aver cornat
Alegrament, ses còr irat.

Sir Raimon, I am in your debt
for agreeing with me this way
in kindly defending, against Sir Bernat,
the one who did not act improperly
towards that wretched Carcinese
when she showed him her horn in private:
he rejected it out of folly,
while I would have liked to horn it
cheerfully, without a sad heart.

Note: albeit it is not very clear, this poem is about anilingus, which a woman named Ena had asked a Bernat de Cornes to perform on her. Bernat refused, which Truc finds unkind; this poem would spark a debate between Raimon de Durfort and none less than Arnaut Daniel (who disagreed). Truc, Bernat, Raimon and Ena are known only through this cycle of poems.
