Matthew Prior

1664 - 1721 / Dorset / England

Full Oft Doth Matt. With Topaz Dine - In Chaucer's Style

Full oft doth Matt. with Topaz dine,
Eateth baked meats, drinketh Greek wine:
But Topas his own worke rehearseth,
And Matt. mote praise what Topaz verseth.
Now shure as priest did e'er shrive sinner,
Full hardly earneth Matt. his dinner.
