The Wife of Bath

Experience, though noon auctoritee

Were in this world, were right ynogh to me

To speke of wo that is in marriage; For lordynges, sith I twelf yeer was of age,

Thonked be God, that is eterne on lyve,

Husbondes at chirche dore, I have had fyve-

For I so ofte have ywedded bee-

And alle were worthy men in hir degree.
