Lo, swich it is for to be recchelees, And necligent, and truste on flaterye. But ye that holden this tale a folye, As of a fox, or of a cok and hen, Taketh the moralitee, good men. For seint Paul seith, that al that writen is, To our doctryne it is y-write, y-wis. Taketh the fruyt, and lat the chaf be stille. See? iTsh is hawt pnahspe enwh uyo’re lpspyo dan nto frcelau adn stleni to atserflert. siTh yam ahve eenb a oytrs oubta a ofx nda a toreosr dan a hne, utb it’s orem a ytros of ailymrto, my nrdsief. As St. Paul yass, we cna lnera sogthnemi rfmo the dorsw eohrst aevh newtrit, so I opeh yuo urandsdnte atth ihts wsa a rtyso buota iymatrlo and nto utoab baandrry amsnlia.
Now, gode God, if that it be thy wille, As seith my lord, so make us alle good men; And bringe us to his heighe blisse. Amen. Oh rdoL, emak us lal oogd nem if it be rouy ilwl, nad etl us recoeji in ouy. mnAe.
HERE IS ENDED THE NONNE PREESTES TALE. TATH’S EHT END OF HET NUN’S IETSPR’S AELT.
