|Haiseaus says that there’s a man
Who had a marvelous ring.
As long as he had it on his finger
|4||His member kept growing.
One day he was riding through the plain
And he found a fountain.
He got down from his horse when he saw it.
|8||And sat next to it.
He washed his hands and his face
And he took his ring off.
And when it pleased him, he stood up.
|12||But he forgot his ring on the grass.
A bishop was passing through.
As soon as he saw the fountain,
he got down and found the ring.
|16||He found it very beautiful,
And without waiting, he put it on his finger.
The member began to stretch
When he had had it there a little while.
|20||Behold the bishop remounted!
He was in very great discomfort
From the member, which was so tensed,
He didn’t go far without it stretching more.
|24||Rather, it kept growing
So much did it grow and tense
That his pants were going to burst.
The bishop shamefully
|28||Showed the happening to his people
But none there could realize
That it was the ring that did it.
It grew so much, it dragged the ground.
|32||He asked his counsel to look
For man or woman who could help,
And who could fix it back.
The man who had lost the ring
|36||Heard about this marvel.
To the bishop he came straight away,
And asked what he would give him
of his own, if he could heal him.
|40||He, who had suffered too much,
Said to him, “All to your ability!”
“I will have,” he says, “by covenant
Your two rings first
|44||And 100 pounds of your money.”
When the rings were pulled out
The member quickly retired:
Before he got his 100 pounds,
|48||The bishop was relieved.
And the deal was very suitable
As both were very happy!
