For wodcock, sny3t and curlue. To wodcok, snype, curlue also, Þe betore in fere with hom schalle goo. Alle schun be dra3un, Syr, at þo syde, And honestly rostyd with outene pryde, With neck and hede suande in fere, Þo bylle put þurghe þo þe3es sere. On alle þese fowles þo legges schune bene, Summe cralled, sum stre3t, as I have sene. And gret as heroun rostyd schalle be, Þat a kny3t is called for gentloré, A capone also þat comyn is, Þo pecok wyth his tayle so have I blys, Þo fesaunt kok, but not þo henne. Þus have I lurnet at gentil men. Alle oþer foles þat swymmen in flode, Þat schun be rostyd, Syr, by þo rode, With outen necke or hede, I trowe, And oþer smalle bryddes, þat I wele knaw, As osel, smityng, laveroc gray, Pertryk, werkock, I dayr wele say. Þo kormorount schalle rost iwys, With þo bylle opone for grete koyntes.
