john skelton quotes - 10 of
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.
Who is there, who?
My maiden Isabel,
Reflaring rosabel. ...
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.
