Invitation To Return - Jean Froissart

Return, my love; too long thy stay;
    Sorrow for thee my soul has stung;
My spirit calls the ev'ry day,—
    Return my love, thou stay'st too long.

For nothing, wanting thee, consoles,
    Or can console, till thou art nigh:
Return, my love, thou stay'st too long,
    And grief is mine till thou be by.

Jean Froissart  (c. 1337 – c. 1405) France
