Cover design Anna Cole
Walther’s poetry is presented here in terms of its major themes, though obviously,
there is sometimes a considerable overlap of subject matter in individual poems.
Within each major theme, however, the poems are presented as far as possible
chronologically, whenever dating is known or can be inferred.

To me, the gate of paradise is shut ...
I heard a river roaring ...
When Frederick of Austria drew his last breath ...
The Crown is older than King Philip is ...
If anyone is sensitive to noise, I’d counsel this ...
There are three things that exercise my mind ...
Vienna’s court declared to me ...
‘Welcome, I’m master of the house’ ...
I have Lord Otto’s word ...
I’ve got my fief, you world! ...
The lord my king has given me a salary ...
I went out, seeking marvels in the world ...
I’ve seen the greatest wonder in the world ...


Lady, for God’s sake listen to my news ...
When all the flowers push upwards through the grass ...
I sat there, lost, confused ...
In our brief days on earth ...
I long had thought I would keep quiet ...
Beneath the linden tree ...

Love lets its name be said ...


Alas that mastery and youth ...
Well then, I’ll also strike some grating tones ...
Ruler of Rome, King of Apulia, may your pity ...
I ride along with three good ways to sing ...


I’ve seen with my own eyes ...

Who kills the lion? Who kills the giant? ...
Where have they gone to, all the years I had ...
