Vox Ultima Crucis

Tarye no lenger; toward thyn herytage
Hast on thy weye, and be of ryght good chere.
Go eche day onward on thy pylgrymage;
Thynke howe short tyme thou hast abyden here.
Thy place is bygged above the sterres clere,
Noon erthly palys wrought in so statly wyse.
Come on, my frend, my brother most entere!
For thee I offered my blood in sacryfice.

—John Lydgate (1370-1450)

bygged ] built.
palys ] palace.
