The Song of Roland
Anonymous, translated by Charles Kenneth Scott-Moncrieff
Stanza XXI

Answers him Guene: "Thou shalt not go for me.
Thou'rt not my man, nor am I lord of thee.
Charles commands that I do his decree,
To Sarraguce going to Marsile;
There I will work a little trickery,
This mighty wrath of mine I'll thus let free."
When Roland heard, began to laugh for glee.
