Ye knowe eek, that in forme of speche is chaunge
With-inne a thousand yeer, and wordes tho

In sondry londes, sondry been usages.

As briddes doon that men in cages fede.
— Geoffrey Chaucer, "The Squire's Tale"


Whan it cam him to purpos for to reste,
I trowe he hadde thilke text in minde,
That 'alle thing, repeiring to his kinde,
Gladeth him-self'; thus seyn men, as I gesse;
Men loven of propre kinde newfangelnesse,
As briddes doon that men in cages fede.
