The Earl of Osel’s Last Goodnight

“Good my lord, will you stay then about your father’s house?
"We’ll walk into these gardens green, in my arms I’ll thee embrace,
“Ten thousand times I’ll kiss your mouth, make sport and be merry.”
“I thank you lady for your kindness, trust me I may not stay with thee.”

“For I shall kill my quarry soon, I care not for the feud,
“My loyal heart doth still incline, he was my squire’s death.
“By day and night I shall pursue, and all on him revenged to be,
“Till I have gotten what I’ve long sought, trust me I may not stay with thee.”

“Farewell Qualdris, my proper place, farewell farewell Siloryne land.
“Farewell my castle of the three, and all of my buildings grand.
“Farewell to Heru’s gates so fine, and the Oselmarch where dun deer run bonny.
“Farewell my lady and my only joy, trust me I may not stay with thee.”

Then he has taken a good gold ring, whereat hang signets three,
Saying, “Take you this, my own dear love, and you’ll have mind of me.
“But if you take another lord while I am o’er the sea,
“His life is but a three day’s lease, trust me I may not stay with thee.”

The wind was free, the ship was clear, the good lord went away,
The best part of his friends were there to give him safe convoy.
They ate the meat, they drank the wine, presenting in that good lord’s sight.
Now he is over the flood so grey, the Earl of Osel’s taken his last goodnight.
