Anthology of Love Poems is one of the books available in Kingdom Come: Deliverance.


Gentle Night

Gentle night, why linger on?
I yearn thus for my love so long,
Without her words to calm my breast,
Who shall set my soul to rest?
And now my heart in sorrow dwells,
From melancholic pining swells.
Since I, alas, was forced to part
From the mistress of my heart.
Ah Lord, let me not wait in vain,
I yearn to see my love again!
Oh gentle Sir, be of good cheer,
I shall not cling to another, dear.

To Love and Be Forlorn

To love and be forlorn
Is like night without a dawn.
To be close with nought to say,
Like winter frost in May.
To have lips and yet kiss not,
Is like leaving grain to rot,
To love without consumating
Is like unsown fields in the spring.
I shall love you then, my dear
As long as you lie with me here.
If you'll not give your all to me,
No longer shall I bide with thee.

Ode to Woman

Woman is the root of sin,
And yet of virtuous deeds again.
In Eden it was woman's deed,
To pluck the apple from the tree.
If you've no wealth to offer, you say,
She will scorn you and turn away,
But once you promise her treasure,
She says she will love you forever.
To murderous wrath she gives birth,
Leaving no peace on this earth.
Wounds inflicted by swords,
Cut less deep than sly women's words.
