Den hont ende den bene

Over I brugghe ghinc I hont,
Die I been droech in den mont.
Doen hi die scade int water sach
Van den bene, hort wat hi plach.
Hi snauwede omt stic van onder.
Dus wert hi van den bene sonder.
Dese favele es gheseit van dien,
Die al willen hebben, dat si sien.
Die emmer anders goet begaren,
Onblide worden si van den haren.
