The Canterbury Tales: The Miller's Tale
With him ther was dwellinge a povre scoler,
Hadde lerned art, but al his fantasye
Was turned for to lerne astrologye.
[He] coude a certeyn of conclusiouns
To demen by interrogaciouns,
If that men asked him in certein houres
Whan that men sholde have droghte or elles shoures,
Or if men asked him what sholde bifalle
Of every thing, I may nat reken hem alle.
This clerk was cleped hende Nicholas
Of derne love he coude and of solas.
