A love song in Old English


Þæt ǣreste mǣl þe iċ
þeċ seah and þōhte,
þū wǣre swā swā fæġer
and scȳne.

The first time that I saw
you and thought,
you were so so fair and
sheen. (Beautiful)

Þā wē spellodon, iċ cnēow þæt iċ
wolde bēon mid þē eallum mīnum līfe.

When we talked, I knew that I
wanted to be with you all my life.

Iċ eom glæd þæt wē sind ætgædere,
I am glad that we are together,

and iċ eom þīn and þū eart mīn.
and I am yours and you are mine.

Þū eart mīn dēorling.
you are my favourite.

Þū bringest mē up, mīn lēofa blōsma.
You bring me up, my dear blossom.

Iċ þē lufie mid eallre mīnre heortan.
Swā þū mē mǣnest þā weorold sōþlīċe.

I love you with all my heart.
So you mean the world to me truly.
