When, silly groom! God wot, it was defect (1346)

Of spirit, life, and bold audacity. (1347)

Such harmless creatures have a true respect (1348)

To talk in deeds, while others saucily (1349)

Promise more speed, but do it leisurely:
Even so this pattern of the worn-out age (1351)

Pawn'd honest looks, but laid no words to gage.
