    Notes Position: whole page

    The first four stanzas and the first two lines of fifth stanza are included twice, once at the beginning and once end of page.  The final three stanzas of poem do not appear at all.

    Kibler does not provide a source for clipping, but based on line breaks and the fragment of a prose introduction at the beginning of poem, it appears to be from The Book of My Lady.
