Robin Hood

"In merry England in the time of old...there lived within the green glades of Sherwood Forest, near Nottingham Town, a famous outlaw whose name was Robin Hood.  No archer ever lived that could speed a gray goose shaft with such skill and cunning as his, nor were there ever such yeoman as the sevenscore merry men that roamed with him through the greenwood shades...They were beloved by the country people round about, for no one ever came to jolly Robin for help in time of need and went away again with an empty fist."

Maid Marian

"...blithely Robin whistled as he trudged along, thinking of Maid Marian and her bright eyes, for at such times a youth's thoughts are wont to turn pleasantly upon the lass that he loves best."

Friar Tuck

"Beneath his busy black brows danced a pair of little grey eyes that could not stand still for very drollery of humor.  No man could look into his face and not feel his heartstrings tickled by the merriment of their look."
 

Alan-a-Dale

"...for so sweet was his voice and so sweet the music that each man sat with bated breath, lest one drop more should come and he should lose it."
 

Will Scarlet

"Gay was he indeed as Robin had said, and a fine figure cut, for his doublet was of scarlet silk and his stockings also...his cap was scarlet velvet...and in his hand he bore an early rose."
 
 

David of Doncaster

"The good old times have gone by when such men grow as grew then...there was young David of Doncaster, with great, stout limbs only less than those of Little John in size."
 
 
"'I do verily believe that this is the merriest feast, the merriest wight, the merriest place, and the merriest sight in all merry England!"
