You are so old and loathsome--and descended To add to that, from such a lowly kind-- No wonder that I toss and turn and wind. I wish to God my heart would burst, no less!
Acts every knight toward his wife this way? Spouse, I am your own true love ... the one as well who saved your life, And I have never done you wrong or spite. Why do you treat me so on our first night?
"My lady and my love and wife I leave to your wise governance the measure; You choose which one would give the fullest pleasure And honor to you, and to me as well. I don't care which you do, you best can tell. What you desire is good enough for me."
I may be poor but it is all the same in the Lord's eyes. I don't live riotously and because of my lower class I am humble. And you say I am old but would you rather me be young and beautiful and have to worry about my faithfulness to you every day?
And when the knight had truly seen all this, How she was young and fair in all her charms, In utter joy he took her in his arms; His heart was bathing in a bath of bliss, A thousand kisses he began to kiss, And she obeyed in each and every way, Whatever was his pleasure or his play.
