Kalliope

Archive of poetry

Kalliope is a database containing old Danish poetry and associated biographical data. The goal is no less than to collect all of the older Danish poetry, but until then, Kalliope will contain a representative and still growing selection. Kalliope also contains poetry in English and other languages, but primarily as reference material to the Danish collection.

Sonnet

 I fynde no peace and all my warr is done,
     I fere and hope, I burn and freise like yse,
     I fley above the wynde yet can I not arrise,
     And noght I have and all the worold I seson.
 That loseth nor locketh, holdeth me in prison
     And holdeth me not, yet can I scape no wise;
     Nor letteth me lyve nor dye at my devise
     And yet of deth it gyveth me occasion.
 Withoute Iyen I se and withoute tong I plain,
     I desire to perisshe and yet I aske helthe,
     I love an othre and thus I hate my self,
 I fede me in sorrowe and laugh in all my pain,
     Likewise displeaseth me boeth deth and lyffe,
     And my delite is causer of this stryff.
