[The Prologe]
Oye folkes hard hearted as a stone,
whiche to this worlde geue al your aduertence,
lyke as it should euer lasten in one, —
where is your wit, where is your prouidence…
Explicit:… Rude of langage, I was not borne in France, —
Haue me excused, my name is Iohn Lidgate;
of ther tong I haue no suffisance,
her curious miters in Englishe to translate.
