The Falcon
By Der von Kürenberg (c. 1175)
 
I RAISED a noble falcon
For more than a year;
And when I had tamed him
And decked his feathers, tying
Them with a golden band,        5
He rose so swiftly, flying
Far to another land.
 
Since then I’ve seen my falcon
Gaily soaring;
And from his feet were waving        10
Fair silken ribbons,
And on his wings each feather
Was ruddy gold to see;
Ah, God bring those together
Who lovers fain would be!        15
