Hmmm - I see a note on them - "Public Domain in the United States, Google-digitized." Phoo! :? Seems funny that you can't access it for just being east of the border.

The Complaint of Chaucer to his Purse
[editor's note: The king addressed in the 'Lenvoy' is probably Henry IV]

TO you, my purse, and to none other wight
Complain I, for you be my lady dear!
I am so sorry, now that you be light;
For certain, but you make me heavy cheer,
Me were as lief be laid upon my bier;
For which unto your mercy thus I cry:
Be heavy again, or else might I die!

Now voucheth safe this day, or be it night,
That I of you the blissful sound may hear,
Or see your colour like the sun bright,
That of yellowness had never peer.
You be my life, you be mine heart's steer*,     *helmsman
Queen of comfort and of good company:
Be heavy again, or else might I die!

Now, purse, that be to me my life's light
And saviour, as done in this world here,
Out of this town help me through your might,
Since that you will not be my treasurer;
For I am shaved as nigh as any friar.
But yet I pray unto your courtesy:
Be heavy again, or else might I die!


     Lenvoy de Chaucer

O conqueror of Brute's Albion*,     *England
Which that by line and free election
Be very king, this song to you I send;
And you, that may all our harms amend,
Have mind upon my supplication!

Geoffrey Chaucer
