The hart lovyt þe wood, the hare lovyt þe hyll,
The knyth lovyt hys sword, the carll lovyt hys byll;
The fowlle lovyt hys folly, the wysseman lovyt hys skyll,
The properte of a schrod qwen ys to have hyr wyll.

The hart loves the wood, the hare loves the hill,
The knight loves his sword, the churl loves his bill,
The fool loves his folly, the wise man his skill:
A shrewd woman's way is to have her will.
