OK, THE LADY TURNED SERVING-MAN. 179
But when the king the truth had found, His joys did more and more abound: According as the old man did say, Sweet William was a lady gay.
Therefore the king without delay                      ios
Put on her glorious rich array, And upon her head a crown of gold, Which was most famous to behold.
And then, for fear of further strife,
He took Sweet William for his wife :             
The like before was never seen,
A serving-man to be a queen.
