Old French citations of departir


D'amor et de pitié ploroient
Quant de lor fille departoient[.]
By love and by despair they cried
When they left their daughter.

circa 1176, Christian of Troyes (translated by Laurence Harf-Lancner), Cligès, ISBN 2-7453-1413-0, page 328:

Bien otroie que il i ira
Qant li tornoiz departira
Car bien a le comandement
Son pere fet oltreemant.
He grants that he will leave
When the tournament finishes
Because he has word
From his father
