p. Chester Beatty Song Cycle 3 love poem 2

(The onlooker)
So get along to the hallway of the sister -
    all alone, and noone beside you -
achieve your desire at her lintel
and the porches will sigh.

Let heaven come down with the breath that stirs,
bringing to you her fragrance:
that scent that floods and intoxicates
all who come into its presence.

The Lady of Gold proclaims her as your splendour
to grant you fulfilment of life.
