Description

The
Departing Soul's Address
To The Body


A Fragment of a
Semi-Saxon Poem
Discovered Among The Archives
Of Worcester Cathedral

Large Print


by
Sir Thomas Phillipps

The student of our early literature and language is indebted to the zeal of Sir Thomas Phillipps, for the discovery of the following interesting Fragment, which appears to have formed part of a volume that contained Ælfric's Grammar and Glossary, probably of the Twelfth Century. The fragments were discovered among the archives of Worcester Cathedral; and in 1836 Sir Thomas Phillipps printed the whole of them in folio.

Large print 15 point font.

**************

Excerpt:

then is the body
banished to the floor;
he is stretcht eastward;
he is soon stiff;
he hardens like clay;
it is of kin to him.
They measure him with a yard,
and that dust, thenceforth,
may not of the earth
have any more
than that right measured
rightly teacheth.
