PASTIME WITH GOOD COMPANY
Youth will needs have dalliance, Of good or ill some pastance ; Company me thinketh the best All thoughts& fantasies to digest.
For idleness
Is chief mistress Of vices all:
Then who can say
But pass the day Is best of all ?
Company with honesty Is virtue; and vice to flee. Company is good or ill, But every man hath his free will.
The best I sue,
The worst eschew: My mind shall be
Virtue to use,
Vice to refuse, I shall use me.
Chajpell. The Words and Tune (by Henry VIII.) from a MS. in the Brit. Mns.
