Ye Tayle of Oure Mother of All Follyes


As cruced yee Sonne across the towering Skye
To myne companions bolde I sayde, sayde I,
"Gude friendes, for Jesu' sake, then strive,
For wee are at syxtene and saevin-nynety-five!

"And fayne I woulde Oure Mothere Fayre uplift,
Ande unto Herre bestow the rairest Gyfte,
By gentle Spyryte and bye Helpin Hande,
To bring herre to Ye Seyventeen of Grande!"

Up spayke the Knighte, the bold Rapaire Yclept,
And said, "The land arounde I have beSwepte!
No Ennemie nor Hurdle lurketh there!"
And so assured us alle, Ye Bold Rapaire.

And thene stept Upp ye tender maiden Stilly,
Who blushing sayde, "An it does note Sounde Sillye,
I wille Myselfe to show here Any Manne,
That I in postes Out Number alle canne."

Thene chimed up Mario, a Manne of Emms,
Who well-reknownd was for Verse and Phlegm,
Ande kindly sayde, "Goode lasse, Bee note afrayde!"
Ande att her Feete, hise Posting Swourd he layde.

But soone returned that grat dispute that did the companee divyde
"Oh watt is folk? and watt is not?" - for eche one sware the other lide.
And bak and forth in bluddy strife from morning till the set of sun,
And through the nicht they still did ficht in battel that was never dun.
"Ficht on ficht on my gallant friends, ficht on, ficht on and take yore stand
Beneeth the banner of the horse, the noble horse that never sang."

Thou can'st ease their trippe wyth Chambers caskes so warme

Came yester e'en, the straugest Dreeme hadde Iye
That ner before this time has crost mine Eye
In dreeming saw Iye menne and Worlde agree
Thate e'er more therefrome wuld Peaseful be.

In dreeeming saw Iye thene a Room full large
Of menne so fulle it was, Iye nowe do sware
Who mightily onPayres long did penne
The vow that ne'er woulde theye Fought agin.

And when with writting papyres alle wer donne,
Tenne thousand times ten thousande writs were made.
And alle swordes ande kniffes and gonnes too
Upon the mudde were alle carelessly laide.

Came yester e'en, the straugest Dreeme hadde Iye
That ner before this time has crost mine Eye
In dreeming saw Iye menne and Worlde agree
Thate e'er more therefrome wuld Peaseful be.
