p. Harris 500 Song Cycle 2 love poem 5

O 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.
