Give me love (Sonnet 100)

from The Songs from the Ghent Season by Pere Vilanova

lyrics

WHERE ART THOU MUSE THAT THOU FORGET’ST SO LONG
TO SPEAK OF THAT WHICH GIVES THEE ALL THY MIGHT?
SPEND’ST THOU THY FURY ON SOME WORTHLESS SONS,
DARKENING THY POWER TO LEND BASE SUBJECTS LIGHT?

RETURN, FORGETFUL MUSE, AND STRAIGHT REDEEM
IN GENTLE NUMBERS TIME SO IDLY SPENT;
SING TO THE EAR THAT DOTH THY LAYS ESTEEM,
AND GIVES THY PEN BOTH SKILL AND ARGUMENT,

RISE, RESTY MUSE, MY LOVE’S SWEET FACE SURVEY.
IF TIME HAVE ANY WRINKLE GRAVEN THERE:
IF ANY BE A SATIRE TO DECAY,
AND MAKE TIME’S SPOILS DESPISED EVERY WHERE.

GIVE ME LOVE.
