Mayden moder milde: the manuscript
London, British Library, Harley MS 2253, f. 83r

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

The poem is the second item on the page; it is laid out as verse, but with Middle English and Old French lines paired, and with no distinction of stanzas. 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).
