And when the game it ended was,                             as
Bold Robin wan it with a grace ; But after the king was angry with him,
And vowed he would him chace.
What though his pardon granted was,
While he with him did stay;                                    so
But yet the king was vexed at him, Whenas he was gone his way.
Soon after the king from the court did hye,
In a furious angry mood, And often enquired both far and near                      as
After bold Robin Hood.
But when the king to Nottingham came,
Bold Robin was in the wood : " 0 come now," said he, " and let me see
Who can find me bold Robin Hood."                   »
But when that bold Robin he did hear
The king had him in chase, Then said Little John, " Tis time to be gone,
And go to some other place."
Then away they went from merry Sherwood, «
And into Yorkshire he did hye ; And the king did follow, with a hoop and a hallow,
But could not come him nigh.
