Hello Geoffrey Chaucer

To celebrate poetry day... a very small extract from 'The General Prologue' of The Canterbury Tales, by Geoffrey Chaucer - 14th century...

A Knight ther was, and that a worthy man, That fro the time that he first bigan To ride out, he loved chivalrye, Trouthe and honour, freedom and curteisye. Ful worthy was he in his lordes were, And therto hadde he ride, no man ferre, As wel in Cristendom as hethenesse, And evere honoured for his worthinesse.
