Already snow has fallen,
Though winter is not come;
No farther can I travel,
The way that leads me home.
Alas! my home is roofless,
Decayed and quite grown old,
Nor door nor window remaining,
Its chambers dark and cold.
Ah! love, on me take pity,
For I am full of woe;
Enfold me within thine arms, love,
And bid chill winter go.
Translation by John Troutbeck
