This boke, called the Pastime of Pleasure, was made and
PASTIME OF PLEASURE.
RYGHT myghty prynce and redoubted soverayne,
Grace stereth well, the grace of God is grete,
Hath to us brought bothe welthe, reste and peace.
Frome whome descendeth by the ryghtfull lyne
Your noble grace and excellent highnes
As the monke of Bury, floure of eloquence,
Of your predecessour, the v. kyng Henry,
The lyght of trouth I lacke cunnying to cloke,
By covert coloure well and probable.
Besechying your grace to pardon myne ignoraunce,
