THEN shaws* be sheen, t and swards full fair,

And leaves both large and long,
It is merry walking in the fair forest

To hear the small birds song.

The woodweel I sang, and would not cease,

Sitting upon the spray,
So loud, he wakened Robin Hood,

In the greenwood where he lay.

A sweaven I had this night;
I dreamt me of two wight yeomen,

That fast with me can fight.
