Maiden in the Mor Lay
Harley Lyrics
Middle English
Circa Early 14th Century

A maiden lays on the moors with nature as her parlour.

"What was her bower?
The red rose and the Lilly flower"

lyrics

Maiden in the mor lay,
In the mor lay,
Seuenyst fulle,
Seuenyst fulle.
Maiden in the mor lay,
In the mor lay,
seuenistes fulle ant a day.

Welle was hire mete,
Wat was hire mete?
The primerole ant the,
The primerole ant the.
Welle was hire mete,
Wat was hire mete?
The primerole ant the violet.
