20             THE HORN OP KING ARTHUR.
And when the cokwoldes wer sette, Garlandes of wylos sculd be fette, And sett vpon ther hedes.
Off the best mete, withoute lesyng, That stode on bord befor the kyng,
Both ferr and nere, To the cokwoldes he sente anon, And bad them be glad euerychon,
Ffor his sake make gode chere.
And seyd, " Lordyngs, for jour lyues, Be neuer the wrother with jour wyues,
Ffor no manner of nede: Off women com duke and kyng j I jow tell without lesyng,
Of them com owre manhed.
So it befell sertenly,
The duke off Glosseter com in hyje,
To the courte with full gret myjht; He was reseyued at the kyngs palys, With mych honour and grete solas,
With lords that were well dygjht.
With the kyng ther dyde he dwell, Bot how long I can not tell,
Therof knaw I non name ; Off kyng Arthour a wonder case, Frendes, herkyns how it was,
Ffor now begynes game.
