p. Harris 500 Song Cycle 2 love poem 5O most beautiful time -
my heart has caught sight of your splendour,
with you now beside your own mistress.
Your arm now rests here upon my breast -
you roll me up inside your loving -
so I say to my heart “Keep apace”
with a prayer
“O permit me my prince in the night”
else I am like one sinking into her tomb -
are you not my well-spring of life?
For being so close to your face yields joy
and for your vitality my heart inclines after you.
