Subject(s): Beauty


The smiling mouth and laughing eyen gray,
The breastes round and long small armes twain,
The handes smooth, the sides straight and plain,
Your feetes lit -- what should I further say?
It is my craft when ye are far away
To muse thereon in stinting of my pain --
The smiling mouth and laughing eyen gray,
The breastes round and long small armes twain.
So would I pray you, if I durst or may,
The sight to see as I have seen,
Forwhy that craft me is most fain,
And will be to the hour in which I day --
The smiling mouth and laughing eyen gray,
The breastes round and long small armes twain.
