yepe (adj. & n.)

(1) Cunning, crafty, sly, wily.
(2) Prudent, wise, sagacious, shrewd, astute.
(3) Active, nimble, brisk, alert; bold, daring.

Used in a phrase in c1485 in Digby Myst:

"Iohn, your cosyn, most virtuus & ȝepe."

The children of the House of Mom
(While sluggish neighbors sleep)
Are dancing on the BS plane,
Full bright, awake, and yepe.
No dank retreats or sullen snooze
These stalwart artists keep
But clear and loud their posts go out
All bright, awake and yepe.
THen tell your friends, and dare your foes
No more to live asleep!
But join the sons of MOAB bold
ANd live their lives all yepe!
