Translation of Gower’s Tale of Florent

Lines 1501-1514

But such is there a special thing,

Which to them all in general

Is most pleasant, and most desired

Above all others, and most craved,

Such a thing cannot be found

By the stars nor the earth:

And thus Florent without hope

May embrace his adventure,

All in the shape of loss,

As is default of his answer.

This knight hath liking to die

Rather than break his oath and lie

In the place there as he was sworn,

And he shaped himself to return again to there.
