You and I and Amyas Cornysh, c1515

You and I and Amyas



You and I and Amyas, Amyas and you and I, to the green wood must we go
Alas! You and I, my life and Amyas
The knight knocked at the castle gate; the lady marvelled who was thereat
To call the porter he would not blin; the lady said he could not come in
Alas! You and I, my life and Amyas
The portress was a lady bright; Strangeness that lady hight
She asked him what was his name; he said 'Desire, your man madame'
Alas! You and I, my life and Amyas
She said 'Desire what do you here'; He said 'Madame, as your prisoner'
He was counselled to brief a bill; And show the lady his own will
Alas! You and I, my life and Amyas
Kindness said she would it bear; And Pity said she would be there
Thus how they did we cannot say - We left them there and went our way
Alas! You and I, my life and Amyas
