p. Harris 500 Song Cycle 2 love poem 6

The voice of the swallow twitters away -
this is his cry:
The land is dawning! Get up on your way!

But don't, small bird speak thus:
I found my brother in his bed,
my soul with sweetness overflowed.

We pledged this too: “Never will I go astray,
but hand put into hand
go journeying with you
to every place of beauty.
He made out I was first of all his beauties,
yet not quite so dazzled, this my soul.
