Forecast
By Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1340–1400)
 
(See full text.)

OR if the soul of proper kind,
Be so perfect as men find,
That it wot what is to come,
And that he warneth all and some
Of every of their aventures,        5
By avisions, or by figures,
But that our flesh hath no might
To understandé it aright,
For it is warnèd too derkely,
But why the cause is, not wot I.        10
