Than seyde he thus to Palamon ful right; ‘I trowe ther nedeth litel sermoning To make yow assente to this thing. Com neer, and tak your lady by the hond.’ Bitwixen hem was maad anon the bond, That highte matrimoine or mariage, By al the counseil and the baronage. And thus with alle blisse and melodye Hath Palamon y-wedded Emelye. And God, that al this wyde world hath wroght, Sende him his love, that hath it dere a-boght. For now is Palamon in alle wele, Living in blisse, in richesse, and in hele; And Emelye him loveth so tendrely, And he hir serveth al-so gentilly, That never was ther no word hem bitwene Of Ielousye, or any other tene. Thus endeth Palamon and Emelye; And God save al this faire companye!—Amen.
