Robyn Hode –
An hundred shefe of arowes gode,
The hedys burneshed full bryght;
And every arowe an elle longe,
With pecok wel idyght,
Inocked all with whyte silver [or silk];
It was a semely syght.
A Gest of Robyn Hode, lines 523-8
English Popular Ballads, 1922 edition
One thought on “Robyn Hode, my boyhood hero”
These days we could use a little of that robbing from the rich and giving to the poor. Bernie Hode for President!
