Middle English text
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.
