Incipit: Prologus
Torpor, ebes sensus, scola parua labor minimusque
causant quo minimus ipse minora canam:
qua tamen Engisti lingua canit Insula Bruti
Anglica Carmente metra iuuante loquar.
Ossibus ergo carens que conterit ossa loquelis
Absit, et interpres stet procul oro malus.
Of hem that writen ous tofore
the bokes duelle, and we therfore
ben tawht of that was write tho:
forthi good is that we also…
Explicit:… forthwith the remenant of grace;

so that above in thilke place
wher resteth love and alle pes,
oure joie mai ben endeles.
Explicit iste liber, qui transeat, obsecro liber,
ut sine liuore vigeat lectoris in ore.
Qui sedet in scannis celi det vt ista lohannis
perpetuis annis stet pagina grata Britannis,
Derbeie Comiti, recolunt quem laude periti,
vade liber purus, sub eo requiesce futurus.
