Spring Tide

"At a springe-wel, under a thorn There was a bote of bale, a litel hire a-forn, There beside stant a maide, full of love ibounde, Whoso wol seche trewe love, in hir it shall be founde"

- Anonymous middle English verse, 14th Century

Spring Tide - "At a sprynge wel under a thorn..."

Based on English folk-lore and a particular bit of 14th century verse/poetry. Though no melody is recorded with the original text, I've found it very pleasant to sing aloud to a tune of my own conception. Watercolour, gouache, graphic pen, indian ink, on paper of some description. Roughly A4 size.
