The manuscript (full page) | the poem (enlarged)

Bytuene Mersh ant Aueril is the second of the three items on this page; its short rhyming lines are laid out in pairs across the page, presumably to save space. Click here for an enlarged version of the poem.
For a general discussion of the MS, see the introductory page on the Harley Lyrics; for a facsimile with description and discussion, see Ker (1965).
