To call to mynde the fundinge of the humanityes, the which ys lyke the light of the sonne on the plantes of learninge and knowledge. 

For wythout al of thes, the past wolde have no wordes for us.

  2. Messer Geoffroi,

    It giveth me payne abouten min herte rote that thou ne comest ne here nay more thanne once yn a twelvemonath, and thenne onlie for to sayen that we scholde syngen.

    Hou then schal we syngen when oure hertes ben wo? An thou'dst haue us syngen, bi thou oure fellawe agayne, nat onlie yn Aprille but thro the cyrcle of seynte's daies that ben a fulle anno domini.

    Wher hastou ben on Whitsun ond Seynte Agnes, Eoster ond St. Swythyn's, Candelmasse and the Anunciacioun? Wher hastou ben at lambing and shearing, sportes Olympiques, awardes yn honour of ye sayntes Antonio ond Emilia and the Orbes Golden? Hastou no wyse counsel on ye tourney of Duc Trompe Norange-Browe agaynst Dame Hilaire ye Corbie-Voyced, or the word-battel among Lordys et Commonys anet makyng common cause wyth the othyr naciouns of Evropa, or on ye Passion-Play of the Unholi Dead that Walken from hir Graves?

    Come to thys taverne betimes, Geoffroi; thou art sorly missed.

    --Nonie
