6. THE FROLICKSOME DUKE. (Frontispiece.)
Now he lay something late, in his rich bed of state,
7. CHEVY CHASE.
Then leaving life, Earl Percy took
8. KING EDWARD AND THE TANNER.
The tanner he pulld, the tanner he sweat,
9. THE HEIR OF LINNE.
And he pulld forth three bags of gold,
THE ABBOT OF CANTERBURY.
Then home rode the abbot of comfort so cold,
13. ROBIN HOOD AND THE CURTAL FRIAR.
The friar took Robin Hood on his back,
14. THE MARRIAGE OF ALLEN-A-DALE.
He ask'd them seven times in the church,
15. VALENTINE AND URSINE.
And kneeling down upon his knee,
16. THE MILLER OF MANSFIELD.
Well, quo' the miller's wife, young man, ye're welcome here;
THEN shaws* be sheen, t and swards full fair,
And leaves both large and long,
To hear the small birds song.
The woodweel I sang, and would not cease,
Sitting upon the spray,
In the greenwood where he lay.
Now by my faith, said jolly Robin,
A sweaven I had this night;
That fast with me can fight.
# A kind of thrush.
