This rhyme made an hermit [This rhyme mad an hermyte]
Former 3637.5, a ghost
Note: This line only occurs as penultimate line of 3066 in Cambridge UK, Cambridge University Library Dd.1.1, ff. 21-29v: on f. 29v, ‘…This ryme mad an hermyte & dide it writen in parchemyn…’; confusion may have arisen from two sources: first, 548 in this MS (ff. 82v-83) tells a tale about a hermit, beginning, ‘And we fynden writen of an Ermyte’, f. 29 was formerly numbered ‘42’, and a tear through this number might result in the ‘4’ looking like an ‘8’ in a photograph. For references to this ghost, see Small (1862), iii-iv; Robbins (1940), 231 and note 4.
