Here bygynneth the Book of the Tales of Caunterbury

     Whan that Aprill, with his shoures soote
     The droghte of March hath perced to the roote
     And bathed every veyne in swich licour,
     Of which vertu engendred is the flour;
 5 Whan Zephirus eek with his sweete breeth
     Inspired hath in every holt and heeth
     The tendre croppes, and the yonge sonne
     Hath in the Ram his halfe cours yronne,
     And smale foweles maken melodye,
 10 That slepen al the nyght with open yë
     (So priketh hem Nature in hir corages);
     Thanne longen folk to goon on pilgrimages
     And palmeres for to seken straunge strondes
     To ferne halwes, kowthe in sondry londes;
 15 And specially from every shires ende
     Of Engelond, to Caunterbury they wende,
     The hooly blisful martir[1] for to seke
     That hem hath holpen, whan that they were seeke.
        Bifil that in that seson, on a day,
 20 In Southwerk at the Tabard as I lay
     Redy to wenden on my pilgrymage
     To Caunterbury with ful devout corage,
     At nyght was come into that hostelrye
     Wel nyne and twenty in a compaignye
 25 Of sondry folk, by aventure yfalle
     In felaweshipe, and pilgrimes were they alle,
     That toward Caunterbury wolden ryde.
     The chambres and the stables weren wyde,
     And wel we weren esed atte beste;
 30 And shortly, whan the sonne was to reste,
     So hadde I spoken with hem everichon
     That I was of hir felaweshipe anon,
     And made forward erly for to ryse
     To take our wey, ther as I yow devyse.
