" And as it flails out, many times
As knotts been knitt on a kell, Or merchant men gone to leeve London,
Either to buy ware or sell,
******* ******* And grete thou doe that ladye well,                          us
Ever soe well ffroe mee.
" And as it flails out, many times
As any harte can thinke, As schoole masters are in any schoole house,
Writting with pen and inke,                                   so
******* ******* Ffor if I might as well as shee may, This night I wold with her speake.
" And heere I send a mantle of greene,
As greene as any grasse, And bid her come to the silver wood,                       as
To hunt with Child Maurice.
" And there I send her a ring of gold,
A ring of precyous stone; And bid her come to the silver wood,
Let for no kind of man."                                           30
One while this litle boy he yode, Another while he ran;
