An Abc

Rating: 3.2
Incipit carmen secundum ordinem litterarum alphabeti.


Almighty and al merciable queene,
To whom that al this world fleeth for socour,
To have relees of sinne, of sorwe, and teene,
Glorious virgine, of alle floures flour,
To thee I flee, confounded in errour.
Help and releeve, thou mighti debonayre,
Have mercy on my perilous langour.
Venquisshed me hath my cruel adversaire.

That's a comprehensive poem on a variety of subjects taken in an alphabetical order. The English of the poem belongs to that of Middle Ages. Thanks.

Amazing how he did the alphabet using 1 letter per stanza, but the spelling maybe should be modernized to current spelling to make it easier to read.
