The Hunting-song of Them That Did Not Hunt
By Ernest Rhys
GOOD-DAY, said the damsel,
Good-morrow to you,
For if you mean hunting
I would hunt with you too;
I am weary of making        5
And baking the bread;
If you stay in my parlour
I will hunt in your stead.
You shall sup in my parlour
My white wine and broth,        10
I am weary of weaving
The sendal and cloth.
Good-day, said the damsel,
Good-even to you:
What is good for the huntsman        15
Is good for me too.
