Geoffrey Chaucer Quotes

    Book Of The Duchesse


    I have gret wonder, be this lighte,
    How that I live, for day ne nighte
    I may nat slepe wel nigh noght,
    I have so many an ydel thoght
    Purely for defaute of slepe
    That, by my trouthe, I take no kepe
    Of no-thing, how hit cometh or goth,
