Ode tew Rapaire of Bee Ess, Kinge



Above all thing thow doth bee ess,   
And foolest the world one tew all;
Who lakythe the, all joy, pardé,   
Wyll sone then frome hym ffall!   
In every place thow makyste foules,   
Gret joye, spoorte, and uelfare;
When troth ys knowne, comfort ys none,   
But thowght, sorowe, and care.   
In kynges corte, where bee ess dothe route,   
Yt makyth the galandes to jett,
And for to were gorgeouse ther gere,
Ther cappes awry to sett.   
In the heyweyes ther joly palfreys   
Yt makyght to lepe and praunce,
It maket justynges, pleys, dysguysynges,   
Ladys to synge and daunce.   
For he that alway maketh bee ess   
Stondyth a mated chere,
Can never wel syng, lang daunce nor springe,   
Nor make no lusty chere.
