The verses you posted at the beginning of the thread are exactly Paul Zech's verses (with slightly different punctuation) from his book, François Villon, Paul Zech: Die Balladen und lasterhaften Lieder des Herrn François Villon in deutscher Nachdichtung, Weimar 1931, p.77.

In this book, the poem has the title "Eine kleine Liebesballade gedichtet für Jeanne Cul de Quée" (A little love ballad written for Jeanne Cul de Quée).
