Excerpt from Medieval English Verse and Prose: In Modernized Versions Layamon laid these books out, and he turned the leaves; With love he searched them, the Lord be to him gracious. He took feathers in his fingers, and he composed on parchment; And these most true words he set then together, And these three books he condensed into one. Now Layamon prayeth each noble man, 4 For the love of Almighty God and of his gracious heart, 30 Who will read these books and learn these runes, That some true words he will say together For his father's soul, who did beget him, And for his mother's soul, who bore him as man, And for his own soul, that it be the better for them.
