They put Clarebalde in a whelebarowe,
Had no fote on to goo.
Sche seyde, Ye that wyll be hale,
Of that ye are ynne,
To all that be here bothe more and mynne.
Soone schall y begynne. :
From kythe and all hur kynne.
Than he seyde to them verament,
And tolde them to the latte;
And all hys false, cafte ; And sythe awey he can hur lede, “ For y wolde have refte fro hur hur maydynhede,
That sche defendyd faste.
I had never wyth hur to doo,
But clene fro me fche paste :"
And fythyn he tolde them of the barley bredd,
2060 “ Then y lye men and howndys bathe, And to the wode y went for wrathe.”
There Tyrry gaf answare:
And that rewyd me full fare ;
And yyt let y hur fare;
For sche was fo bryght of blee,
Therfore let y hur goo.
-My harte was wondur throo. When y wolde have leyn hur by, My for tethe finote fche owt for thy,
That wakenyd all my woo;

Trewly hyt was foo."
Then Tyrry farde as he wolde wede,
Then wepyd dame Eglantyne,

2090 Clarebalde seyde, Sche came be me, I stode undur a galowe-tree,
And a rope abowte hals myne ;
Fro the galowse sche borowed me,
And serve hur to hur paye.
Then spake the maryner that hur boght,
Soone fche seyde me naye ;
Sche brake my schypp wyth a tempeste,
And fyth fawe y never that maye,
Upon an ore to londe y wanne,
And nevyr had happe to hele;
That cawlyd hur to wante hur wylle.
And odur folke full feele.
Thus can sche wyth them dele ;
The venome brafte owt of hys ere.
. Hys herte was full throo.
Then was the lady woo.'.
And to the halle can goo,
They looveyd god, lesse and more,
That longe had be them froo.
Soche a feste as there was oon,
2130 In that lande was never noon,
They gaf the nonnes rente, And all ther golde, wythowt lesynge, But unnethys that that myght them home brynge,
And thankyd them for that gente. Florence seyde, Syr, wyth yowre leeve, Tyrrye some thynge mufte yow geve,
That me my lyfe hath lente. He gaf hym the cyté of Florawnce. And bad hym holde hyt wythowt dystawnce: 2140
They toke ther leve and wente.
Tyrrye wente home to hys cuntrè,
In full ryall arraye.
