The Canterbury Tales: The Knight's Tale
[He] seyde, 'Arcite, false traytour wikke1
Now artow hent that lovest my lady so,
For whomthat I have al this peyne and wo,
And art my blood, and to my conseil sworn,
As I ful ofte have seyd thee heerbiforn.'
'For I defye the seurete and the bond
Which that thou seist that I have maad to thee.
What, verray fool, thynk wel that love is free,
And I wol love hir, maugree al thy myght!'
'And ye shul bothe anon unto me swere,
That nevere mo ye shal my contree dere,
Ne make were upon me, nyght ne day,
But been my freendes in al that ye may.'
