Commentary

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Written in Mary Shelton’s hand, this poem is also signed “Mary Shelton” and could be an original creation by Shelton herself. The speaker expresses a hope to regain what he or she has lost and to accept the outcome. “A wel I hawe at other lost” appears as the second poem entered on the page (placed at the bottom of 22v).
