130 ADAM BEL, CLTM OP THE CLOUGHE,
They were outlawed for venyson,
These yemen everechohe ; They swore them brethren upon a day, is
To Englysshe-wood for to gone.
Now lith and lysten, gentylmen, That of myrthes loveth to here :
Two of them were single men,
The third had a wedded fere. '■»
"Wyllyam was the wedded man,
Muche more then was hys care: He sayde to hys brethren upon a day,
To Carelel he would fare,
For to speke with fayre Alse hys wife, 2.5
And with hys chyldren thre. " By my trouth," sayde Adam Bel,
" Not by the counsell of me.
" For if ye go to Caerlel, brother,
And from thys wylde wode wende, . 30
If the justice mai you take,
Your lyfe were at an ende."
" If that I come not tomorowe, brother,
By pryme to you agayne, Truste not els but that I am take, s»
Or else that I am slayne." 18. And that.
