List of years in poetry (table)
In literature
Her lothly lere [unwanted complexion]
Is nothing clear,
But ugly of cheer,
Droopy and drowsy,
Scurvy and lousy;
Her face all bowsy [bloated by drink]
Comely crinkled,
Wondersly wrinkled,
Like a roast pig's ear,
Bristled with hear. [hair]

-- Lines 12-21, "The Tunnyng of Elynour Rummyng" by John Skelton. The poem is thought to have been first published this year.
