“The Lively Larke”: Henry, I did hyde his name

Vere poetry, The Lyvely Larke, plaintextFig. 1        

Vere poetry, The lyvely larke, HENRY, my SON HYDEFig. 2

   The poem itself is given no attribution.  Assuming the Henry in the encryption is Henry Wriothesley, 3rd Earle of Southampton, and the son of Edward de Vere and Elizabeth I, even an attribution of E.O.” would be a risky reference to make.

I. II. MMXIV
