Speak like a saxon: Monday mornings

Now, I don't know how much you like or dislike Monday mornings. If you think the whole world languishes in misery over the loss the the weekend; if they reduce you to groaning and moaning then you might find this phrase from the poem Andreas (l. 1554) useful:



þær was wop wera    wide gehyred
 
(weeping of men was heard far and wide)

["there was wop where-a weed-uh ye-hoor-ed"]

That's it for today.
