|Singing to the river
|We went on. When we were come to the
meeting of the roads
, we went the way of the road that goes to the upper camps. We made no stops until we were come to where a long time ago the road had a
to go across the
, and some men that had understanding made it a
to go across on. When we were come to the bridge, we made a stop and I did sing to the rivière a song. I sang it Le chant de Seine, de Havre, et Essonne et Nonette et Roullon et Iton et Darnetal et Ourcq et Rille et Loing et Eure et Audelle et Nonette et Sarc. I sang it as
did teach me to, and as he has wrote it in the book.
