And do as I bydde the, And ordayne good aroheres inowe
Of all the wyde countree." «
The sheryf had his leve itake,
And went hym on his way; And Robyn Hode to grene wode [went]
Upon a certayn day.
And Ly tell Johan was hole of the arowe, «
That shote was in his kne, And dyde hyni strayte to Robyn Hode,
Under the grene wode tre.
Robyn Hode walked in the fbreste,
Under the leves grene; »
The proud sheryfe of Notyngham,
Therfore he had grete tene.
The sheryf there fayled of Robyn Hode,
He myght not have his pray; Then he awayted that gentyll knyght, w
Bothe by nyght and by daye.
Ever he awayted that gentyll knyght,
Syr Rychard at the Lee ; As he went on haukynge by the ryver syde
And let his haukes flee, «)
