John Skelton

To Mistress Margery Wentworth

WITH margerain gentle,
    The flower of goodlihead,
Embroidered the mantle
    Is of your maidenhead.
Plainly I cannot glose;
    Ye be, as I divine,
The pretty primrose,
    The goodly columbine.

Benign, courteous, and meek,
    With wordes well devised;
In you, who list to seek,
    Be virtues well comprised.
With margerain gentle,
    The flower of goodlihead,
Embroidered the mantle
    Is of your maidenhead.
