Love brought me

A medieval poem – christ3

Love brought me . And love wrought me . Man, to be thy fere. (companion)

Love fed me . And love led me . And love left me here.

Love slew me . And love drew me . And laid me on my bier.

Love is my peace, For love release . Of man I purchased dear.

For dread thee nought, I have thee sought . To anchor near.

To haven thee . Safe in my lee, And keep thee from fear.


And so, Lent begins.
