Gup, Christian Clout, gup, Jack of the Vale!
With Mannerly Margery Milk and Ale.
A phoenix it is
This hearse that must bless
The bird of Araby,
That potentially
May never die,
And with the corner of a Creed,
The more shall be your meed.
There riseth a new creation
Of the same fashion
Without alteration,
For the soul of Philip Sparrow
That was late slain at Carrow,
Among the Nunnes Black.
Place bo!
Who is there, who?
My maiden Isabel,
Reflaring rosabel.
Merry Margaret,
As midsummer flower,
Gentle as falcon
Or hawk of the tower:
With margeran gentle,
The flower of goodlihood,
Embroidered the mantle
Is of your maidenhood.
