Excerpt from Specimens of Lyric Poetry, Composed in England in the Reign of Edward the First In the present volume I have included all the lyric poetry in this manuscript, except' those which have been given in the Political Songs. They are curious as illustrating the language of the period; but some of them are obscure, onaccount of the difficult grammatical constructions and uncommon words with which they abound. I at first proposed to give a glossary; but other occupations have so far taken up my leisure, that I have preferred giving to the members of the Percy Society bare texts than nothing at all. I am also rather Opposed to the multiplication of small and imperfect separate glossaries; and I would suggest that, after the publication of a few more collections of poetry of the fourteenth cen tury, the Society should print a general glossary of the language for the use of its members.
