ROBIN HOOD AND HIS MEINY
' Have here four hundred pound,' said the' Knight,
' The which ye lent to me ; And here is also twenty mark
For your courtesy.'
' Nay, 'fore God,' said Robin Hood,
' Thou brook it well for aye; For Our Lady, by her Cellarer,
Hath sent to me my pay.
' And if I would it twice take
A shame it were to me ; But truly now, thou gentle Knight,
Welcome art thou to me.'
When Robin Hood had told his tale,
He laugh'd and made good cheer. ' By my truthe,' said the Knight,
' Your money is ready here.'
' Brook it well,' said Robin Hood,
' Thou gentle Knight so free ; And welcome be thou, gentle Knight,
Under my trystell-tree !
' But what shall these bows do,' said Robin, ' And these arrows feather'd free ?'—
' With your will,' then said the Knight, ' A poor present to thee.'—
