ROBIN HOOD AND GUY OF GISBORNE
' Leade on, good fellowe,' quoth Robin Hood.
' Leade on, I doe bidd thee.'— ' Nay by my faith, good fellowe,' hee sayd,
' My leader thou shalt bee.'
The first good shoot that Robin led,
He mist but an inch it fro': The yeoman he was an archer good,
But he cold ne'er shoote soe.
The second shoote had the wight yeman,
He shote within the garlande : But Robin he shott far better than hee,
For he clave the good pricke wande.
' God's blessing upon thy heart! ' he sayd;
' Good fellowe, thy shooting is goode ; For an thy hart be as good as thy hand,
Thou wert better than Robin Hood.'
'Now tell me thy name, good fellowe,' sayd he.
' Under the leaves of lyne.'— 'Nay by my faith,' quoth good Robin,
' Till thou have told me thine.'
xxxv ' I dwell by dale and downe,' quoth hee,
' And Robin to take I'me sworne ; And when I am called by my right name
I am Guy of good Gisborne.'—
