MS Cambridge, 13th century


Bryd one brere, brid, brid one brere
Kynd is come of loue loue to crave.
Blithful biryd on me thu rewe,
Or greyth, lef, greith thu me my grave.

Hic am so blithe, so bryhit, brid on brere;
Quan I se that hende in halle –
Yhe is quit of lime, loue-li, trewe,
Yhe is fayr, and flur of alle.

Mikte hic hire at wille hauen,
Stedefast of loue, loue-li, trewe,
Of mi sorwe yhe may me sauen;
Ioye and blisse were ere me Newe.

MS Cambridge, King’s Coll., Muniment Roll 2 W.32, ~1300
