p. Chester Beatty Song Cycle 3 love poem 1

(The onlooker)
So get along to the house of the sister,
you'll drift on down to her doorway,
she'll lift aloft her gate-latch,
dismissing it now she's the mistress.

Supply her with songs and the dance,
with wine and ale in the shade -
you'll unravel her reservation
and find fulfilment in her night.

So she'll sigh to you, “Let me into your arms -
at day-break we'll still be this way.
