Most clere of colour and rote of stedfastness,
With vertu connyng her maner is lede,
Which that passyth my mynde for to express
Of her bounte, beaute and womanhode;
The bryghtest myrrour and floure ofgoodlyhed,
Which that all men knowith, both more and less;
Thes vertues byn pryntyd in her doutless.
