Evelyn atte Holye, Award of the Orion

Loving words have been spoken
Of one Lady Evelyn atte Holye

They tell of her skill in sewing,
Her grace in teaching, and her
True eye for colour and taste.

She sets her face towards all Arts
and lets Beauty be her guide.

Such work and service has not gone unnoticed,
And today We are pleased to honour her
Before all of Ealdormere.

Wherefore do We
King Trumbrand the Wanderer
And Queen Kaylah the Cheerful
Bestow upon you the Award of the Orion.
Enter into the joy of Our hearts.

Done this third day of November
Anno Societatis XXXXII
In Our Shire of Trinovantia Nova.

Wording, calligraphy and illumination by THL Asa Gormsdottir


Inspired by a 15th century Spanish ms Add. 21,120
