And on the morwe whan the day gan spring, Of hors and harneis noise and clattering Ther was in the hostelries all aboute : And to the paleis rode ther many a route Of lordes, upon stedes and palfreis.
Стр. 215 - ... and, beyond the church, rise the shelves of rock, overhung with fern and ivy, which echoed their first litanies.
