Bold Marinell of Britomart,
Is throwne on the Rich strond:
Faire Florimell of Arthur is
Long followed, but not fond.

[The lady knight Britomart drops the dude knight of the sea Marinell on his ass-ets.

Arthur searches for the lady Florimell for a while but ain’t got no luck with it. – Curator Prime]
