Praise of Women by Robert Mannyng of Brunne

 

No thyng ys to man so dere
As wommanys love in gode manere.
A gode womman is mannys blys,
There her love right and stedfast ys.
There ys no solas under hevene,
Of alle that a man may nevene,
That shulde a man so moche glew
As a gode womman that loveth trew.
Ne derer is none in Goddys hurde
Than a chaste womman with lovely worde.

Robert Mannyng of Brunne (1269–1340)
