Geoffrey Chaucer

Lat take a cat, and fostre him wel with milk, And tendre flesh, and make his couche of silk, And let him seen a mous go by the wal; Anon he weyveth milk, and flesh, and al, And every deyntee that is in that hous, Swich appetyt hath he to ete a mous.More Geoffrey Chaucer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
That of all the floures in the mede,
Thanne love I most these floures white and rede,
Suche as men callen daysyes in her toune.More Geoffrey Chaucer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There was the murdered corpse, in covert laid,
And violent death in thousand shapes displayed;
The city to the soldier's rage resigned;
Successless wars, and poverty behind;
Ships burnt in fight, or forced on rocky shores,
And the rash hunter strangled by the boars;
The newborn babe by nurses overlaid;
And the cook caught within the raging fire he made.More Geoffrey Chaucer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Of harmes two the less is for to chose.More Geoffrey Chaucer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And broughte of mighty ale a large quart.More Geoffrey Chaucer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
