An Anonymous sixteenth century poem
to send you on your way:

Now have  good day, now have good day.
I am Shrovetide, and now I go my way.

But often times I have heard say
That one is loath to part away
That often biddeth "have good day,"
   Now have good day.

I take my leave of king and knight,
And earl, baron, and lady bright,
To wilderness I must delight,
   Now have good day.

And from the good lord of this hall,
I take my leave, and of guests all:
Methinks I hear Lent doth call,
   Now have good day.

Blessings, All!  See you in church.
