Ye Carpette Knyghte

by
 I have a horse - a ryghte good horse -
Ne doe Y envye those
Who scoure ye playne yn headye course
Tyll soddayne on theyre nose
They lyghte wyth unexpected force
Yt ys - a horse of clothes.
I have a saddel - "Say'st thou soe? Wyth styrruppes, Knyghte, to boote?" I sayde not that - I answere "Noe" - Yt lacketh such, I woote: Yt ys a mutton-saddel, loe! Parte of ye fleecye brute.
I have a bytte - a ryghte good bytte - As shall bee seene yn tyme.
Ye jawe of horse yt wyll not fytte; Yts use ys more sublyme.
Fayre Syr, how deemest thou of yt? Yt ys - thys bytte of rhyme.
