I thank the mekill, schir knight,” said the ryall,
"Because of yone bald berne, that broght me of bandis,
Cumly conquerour, and kyng,
Heir mak [I] yow obeifing,
As liege lord of ladis.
And fyne fewte I yow feft, without fenyeing,
Sa pt the cause may be kend, and knawin throw skill;
As I am haldin to tell treuly thair till.”
Of fchir Gologras grant blith wes the king,
And thoght þe fordward wes fair, freyndschip to fulfil.
Gart pe fouerane him self, femely on faill,
Cary to be caftel, cleirly to be hald,
With all be wourthy þt were,
Erll, duke, and douch-spere,
Baith banrent and bachilere,
That blyth war & bald.
Quhen pe femely fouerane wes fet in þe faill,
To ony wy in this warld, wourthy, I wife.
The renkis rial of array,
Bownyt hame thair way,
With outin mare baid.
Quhen the ryal roy, maist of renoune,
With al his reuerend rout wes reddy to ryde;
The king, cumly with kith, wes crochit with croune,
To schir Gologras be gay, faid gudly þt tyde,—
But dreid I fall þe warand,
Baith be fey and be land,
Fre as I the first fand,
With outin distance."
