Harley Lyrics
Middle English
Circa 1340 or earlier

"With longing I am stricken
On earth I grow mad
A maid injures me
I cry out, I groan, un-glad
For seldom I'm requited
That fair one for to see!"


With longyng y am lad,
On molde y waxe mad,
A maide marreth me ;
Y grede, y grone, un-glad,
For selden y am sad
that semly forte se ;
levedi, thou rewe me,
To routhe thou havest me rad ;
Be bote of that y bad,
My lyf is long on the.

Levedy, of aUe londe
Les me out of bonde,
Broht icham in wo.
Have resting on honde.
Ant sent thou me thi sonde,
Sone, er thou me slo ;
My reste is with the ro :
Thah men to me han onde.
To love nuly noht wonde,
Ne lete for non of tho.
