The Canterbury Tales: The Miller's Tale
For though that Absolon be wood or wroth,
By cause that he fer was from hir sighte,
This nye Nicholas stood in his lighte.
This knave gooth him up ful sturdily,
And at the chambre dore, whyl that he stood,
He cryde and knokked as that he were wood.
And at the laste he hadde of him a sighte.
This Nicholas sat evere caping uprighte,
As he had kyked on the newe mone.
