This Book of Hours Love wrought

Language: English

This Book of Hours Love wrought 
With burnished letters gold, 
Each page with art and thought 
And colours manifold. 

His calendar he taught 
To youths and virgins cold --
This Book of Hours Love wrought 
With letters burnished gold. 

Love's priceless book is bought
With sighs and tears untold 
Of votaries who sought
His countenance of old -- 
This Book of Hours Love wrought 
With letters burnished gold.
