ROBIN HOOD AND HIS MEINY
The Monk took the horse with spur,
No longer would he abide ; ' Ask to drink,' then said Robin,
' Ere that ye further ride.'
' Nay, 'fore God,' then said the Monk,
' Me rueth I came so near ; For better cheap I might have dined
In Blyth or Doncastere.'
' Greet well your Abbot,' said Robin, ' And your prior, I you pray,
And bid him send me such a Monk To dinner every day ! '
Now lette we that Monk be still, And speak we of that Knight:
Yet he came to hold his day, The while that it was light.
He did him straight to Barnesdale?
Under the green-wood tree, And he found there Robin Hood,
And all his merry meinee.
The Knight lit down off his good palfrey,
Robin when he gan see ; Courteously he did a-down his hood,
And set him on his knee.
For better cheap] more cheaply.
