3932 Disceyve, that men tristen most.
3933 I see wel that I am nygh shent,
3934 But if I sette my full entent

3938 And come to wayte me vilonye,

3941 To lyve the more in sikirnesse,
3942 Do make anoon a fortresse,
3943 Thanne close the roses of good savour.
3944 In myddis shall I make a tour
3945 To putte Bialacoil in prisoun,
3946 ffor evere I drede me of tresoun.

3948 That he shal have no myght to goo
3949 Aboute to make companye
3950 To hem that thenke of vylanye;
3951 Ne to no such as hath ben heere
3952 Aforn, and founde in hym good chere,
3953 Which han assailed hym to shende,
3954 And with her trowandyse to blynde.
