Merry Adventures of Robin Hood
Giving an account of Robin Hood and his adventure with the
Kings Foresters. Also telling how his band gathered
around him, and of the merry adventure that gained him his
good right hand man, the famous Little John.
Robin Hood Came to Be an Outlaw
Merry England in the time of old, when good King Henry the
Second ruled the land, there lived within the green glades
of Sherwood Forest, near Nottingham Town, a famous outlaw
whose name was Robin Hood. No archer ever lived that could
speed a gray goose shaft with such skill and cunning as his,
nor were there ever such yeomen as the sevenscore merry men
that roamed with him through the greenwood shades. Right merrily
they dwelled within the depths of Sherwood Forest, suffering
neither care nor want, but passing the time in merry games
of archery or bouts of cudgel play, living upon the Kings
venison, washed down with draughts of ale of October brewing.
only Robin himself but all the band were outlaws and dwelled
apart from other men, yet they were beloved by the country
people round about, for no one ever came to jolly Robin for
help in time of need and went away again with an empty fist.
now I will tell how it came about that Robin Hood fell afoul
of the law.
antiqued paper is delicately laced with a subtle hint of gold
in the creases creating an almost magical look. (Although
its difficult to catch with a camera, you can see in
the image below how the shimmering is caught in the light)
