Een costerken op sijn clocken clanc

Language: Middle Dutch (Middelnederlands)

Een costerken op syn clocken clanc
Smorgens vroech en weckte de lien.
Een aerdich vrouken, wit en blanc,
Moest met schalcksen ooghen aensien.
Doen sprack dat vrouken: “Macht gheschien!
Spant op u cloxkens en beyt niet lanc!
Laet ons spelen den binc, den banc,
Van tinge, tinge, tanc.
Goeden ontvanc sal u gheschien.
Dus soo en wilt vandaer niet vlien.”
