Of one that is so fayr and bright
Velut maris stella,
Brighter than the dayes light,
Parens et puella:
Ic crie to thee, thou see to me,
Levedy, preye thi Sone for me

Of alle thu berst the pris,
Levedy, quene of Parays
Maide milde, Moder es

This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary
for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees,
the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03%
of our visitors.
