Storyboard Text

  • "Long ago, there dwelt a poor old widow In a small cottage, by a little meadow beside a grove standing in a dale,"
  • "She has a yard that was enclosed about By a stockade and a dry ditch without, in which she kept a cock named Chanticleer,"
  • "Was known as Lady Pertelote... She held the heart of Chanticleer controlled,"
  • "This Chanticleer began to groan and lurch like someone sorely troubled by a dream, and Pertelote heard him roar and scream,"
  • "Dreams can give a due Warning of things that later on come true,"
  • "I dreamt that roaming up and down a while within our yard I saw a kind of beast, A sort of hound or it seemed at least to try and seize me ... would have killed me dead!"
  • "You have forfeited my heart and lost my love. I can not love a coward,"
  • "Dear sir, I was not even spying on you! Truly I came to do no other thing than just to lie and listen to you sing, You have as merry a voice as God has given."
  • "This Chanticleer began to beat a wing. As one incapable of smelling treason, So wholly has this flattery ravished reason.
  • "He then began to sing with all of his might. Sir Russel Fox leapt to the attack, Grabbing his gorge and flung him over his back."
