THE TUKNAMENT OF TOTENHAM. 105
With a flayle for to fyzt: And he that is moste of myzt
Shalle brok hir with wynne. «
" He that berys hym best in the turnament, Him shal be grauntid the gre be the comyn assent, Ffor to wynne my dozter with duztynesse of dent, And Coppull, my brode hen, that was brozt out of Kent, And my donned cow. «>
Ffor no spence will I spare, Ffor no catell wille I care ; He shalle have my gray mare, And my spottyd sowe."
Ther was mony a bolde lad theire bodys to bede :
Than thei toke theire leve and hamwarde thei
And r alle the weke afterward thei graythed her
wede, Tille hit come to the day that thei shulde do thaire dede. Thei armyd theym in mattes, Thei sett on theire nolles »
Gode blake holies, Ffor to kepe theire pollis Ffor batteryng of battes.
47. Wright, He.
