His home than gan he blow, That all the outlawes of that forest,

And gadred them togyder,
In a lytell throwe ; Seven score of wight yonge men
Came redy on a rowe,
And fayre dyde of theyr hodes, 123
And set them on theyr kne: " Welcome," they sayd, " our mayster,
Under this grene wode tre."

Twenty yere and two ; is>
For all drede of Edwarde our kynge,

Through a wycked woman, The pryoresse of Kyrkesly, i&
