ROBIN HOOD AND GUY OF GISBORNE
' My dwelling is in this wood,' sayes Robin,
' By thee I set right nought: I am Robin Hood of Barnesdale,
Whom thou so long hast sought.'
He that had neither beene kithe nor kin, Might have seene a full fayre sight,
To see how together these yemen went With blades both browne and bright:
To see how these yemen together they fought
Two howres of a summer's day: Yett neither Sir Guy nor Robin Hood
Them fettled to fiye away.
Robin was reachles on a roote,
And stumbled at that tyde ; And Guy was quick and nimble with-all,
And hitt him o'er the left side.
' Ah deere Lady ! ' sayd Robin Hood,
' That art both mother and may, I think it was never man's destinye
To dye before his day.'
Robin thought on Our Ladye deere,
And soone leapt up againe, And strait he came with an auk ward stroke,
And he Sir Guy hath slayne.
