Winter Song
by Lord Richard of Woodenbridge
(as played at Yule during the Riegn of Hanover and Eormid)

He once had been a worthy Knight
So handsome and so bold
but time'd hath its way with men,
now he waxes old.

His wont was once to danse and sing
Make Merry geste and play,
upon the lute so merrily
from even till break of day.

He once had been a worthy Knight
So handsome and so bold
but time'd hath its way with men,
now he waxes old.

Take heed all ye who hear my song
Attend and mark it well
for summer is a season past
and autumn winters knell.

He once had been a worthy Knight
So handsome and so bold
but time'd hath its way with men,
now he waxes old.
but time'd hath its way with men,
now he waxes old.
