Valentinno’s collection of poems brilliantly captures the whimsical sensation of falling in love

By Words or Vow

To her own lips my own kisses sin,
fair desire bounds my heart in sweet
division; and do upon love’s altar
true, my dear angel found her fame
in heaven.

Where the wings of night sleep with
endymion, and by word or vow two
bodies are interchanged and in ex-
change for her sweet loves joy, when
promised. I swear by the golden bow
of the moon.

That in amity, faithfulness and
adoration, I keep my holy oath unbroken
with mouth to breath, I kiss her divining
eyes like righteous veiling stars in long
bright fane, sparkling in their circled

Where those Goliath rays move the night
O’ those rays that her cloud gazing eyes
Infuse in me, as pure as unpainted
innocence, she draws in the whirlwinds of
passion that shake the velvet buds with
beauty’s might.
