Chess Match (31)

And when they had feasted all so free,
They cried for chess to increase their glee.

“Sir Sallemand, listen to what I say,
May I at chess with thy daughter play?”

“Yes, thou to play with her art free,
Whether within or without I be.”

The young Sir Thor and Thure the maid,
A game of chess at the table played.

The longer they played, they happier grew,
Full pleased with each other were the two.

FINNISH ARTS, OR, SIR THOR AND DAMSEL THURE: A BALLAD

Thirty-first in an occasional series.
