Amoret

,

a love-song, love-knot, love, affair, love personified. A pretty word, which might be reintroduced.

“He will be in his amorets, and his canzonets, his pastorals, and his madrigals.”—Heywood: Love’s Mistress.


“For not icladde in silke was he,

But all in flouris and flourettes,

I-paintid all with amorettes.”


Romance of the Rose, 892.
