Stanza 78


No Analogue


Valterius interea, sepe vultum coniugis ac verba considerans, nullum unquam mutati animi perpendit indicium:

Walter, in the meanwhile, though he often studied his wife's face and words, never detected any sign of a change of feeling:


The sergeant gooth, and hath fulfild this thyng,
But to this markys now retourne we,
For now gooth he ful faste ymaginyng,
If by his wyves cheere he myghte se
Or by hir word aperceyve that she
Were chaunged, but he nevere hir koude fynde,
But evere in oon ylike sad and kynde.
