Song: ‘No thanks to Tristan that his heart had been’
By Heinrich von Veldeke (c. 1140–50–c. 1190)
 
Translation of Edgar Taylor

NO thanks to Tristan that his heart had been
Faithful and true unto his queen;
For thereto did a potion move
More than the power of love:
    Sweet thought to me,        5
That ne’er such cup my lips have prest;
    Yet deeper love than ever he
    Conceived, dwells in my breast:
          So may it be!
      So constant may it rest!        10
        Call me but thine
        As thou art mine!
