GLASGERION.
" Awake, awake, my deere master, The cock hath well-nigh crowen;
Awake, awake, my master deere,                  ss
I hold it time to be gone.
" For I have saddled your horsse, master, Well bridled I have your steede,
And I have served you a good breakfast, For thereof ye have need."                         oo
Up then rose good Glasgerion,
And did on hose and shoone, And cast a coller about his necke:
For he was a kinge his sonne.
And when he came to the ladyes chambere, cs
He thrilled upon the pinne; The ladye was more than true of promise,
And rose and let him inn.
" 0 whether have you left with me 'Tour bracelet or your glove ?                    w
Or are you returned back againe To know more of my love ? "
Glasgerion swore a full great othe, By oake, and ashe, and thorne ;
" Ladye, I was never in your chambere, ra Sith the time that I was borne."
