The Squire’s Prologue


Squire, come nearer, if your will it be,
And speak to us of love; for certainly
You know thereof as much as any man.”
“Nay, sir,” said he, “but I’ll do what I can
With hearty will; for I will not rebel
Against your wishes, but a tale will tell.
Hold me excused if I say aught amiss,
My aim is good, and lo, my tale is this.”
