Chapter 1

“Le joyeulx temps passé souloit estre occasion que je faisoie de plaisants diz et gracieuses chançonnetes et ballades.  Mais je me suis mis à faire cette traittié d’affliction contre ma droite nature … et suis content de l’avoir prinse, car mes douleurs me semblent en estre allegées.”—Le Romant de Troilus.

To all old Friends; to all who dwell    Where Avon dhu and Avon gel    Down to the western waters flow Through valleys dear from long ago; To all who hear the whisper’d spell Of Ken; and Tweed like music swell Hard by the Land Debatable,    Or gleaming Shannon seaward go,—       To all old Friends!
