The Courts of Love
The courts of love are fair to see Built of shining masonry Quaintly carved in olden day By the fairies’ hands they say. Underneath the arching trees Gentle lovers take their ease Chanting songs of Ladye Love, Whilst the birds which flit above Make the golden courts to ring With the joyous song they sing. “Love is Lord of everything”. Maidens in the Month of May Watch the Knights who ride that way Who for noble deeds and name Are received with fair acclaim. At the court they linger long, Rest is sweet and Love is strong. Then at quiet eventide Lovers through the gardens glide Speaking softly, whilst a ring Of twilight fairies strangely sing “Love is Lord of everything”.
