“Whsn that Aprill with his shoures soote

The droghte of March hath perced to the roote,

And bathed every veyne in swich licour

Of which vertu engendred is the flour;

Whan Zephirus eek with his sweete breeth

Inspired hath in every holt and heeth

The tendre croppes, and the yonge sonne

Hath in the Ram his half cours yronne,

And smale foweles maken melodye,

That slepen al the nyght with open ye

(So priketh hem nature in hir corages),

Thanne longen folk to goon on pilgimages,

And palmeres for to seken straunge strondes,

To ferne halwes, kowthe in sundry londes;

And specially from every shires ende

Of England to Caunterbury they wende,

The hooly blissful martir for to seke,

That hem hath holpen whan that they were seeke.”

Read by B. Sanders
Geoffrey Chaucer, prologue to The Canterbury Tales
