Fowles in the Frith by Anonymous with rough rendering into modern English by flusteredduck

Fowles in the frith,
The fisshes in the flood,
And I mon waxe wood
Much sorwe I walke with
For beste of boon and blood.

Fowls in the wood,
The fishes in the flood,
And I must go mad
Much sorrow I walk with
For beast of bone and blood.
