"When that April with his showers sweet...


4
00:01:55,381 --> 00:01:58,839
"the drought of March
hath pierced to the root...


5
00:01:58,952 --> 00:02:02,012
"and bathed
every vein in such liqueur...


6
00:02:02,122 --> 00:02:05,558
"from which virtue
engendered is the flower, ;


7
00:02:06,593 --> 00:02:09,494
"When Zephyrus seek
with his swete breath...


8
00:02:09,596 --> 00:02:12,224
"inspired hath
in every holt and heath...


9
00:02:12,332 --> 00:02:14,698
"the tender croppes...

10
00:02:14,801 --> 00:02:19,431
"and the young sun hath in the Ram
his half cours y-ronne...


11
00:02:20,640 --> 00:02:23,609
"and smale foweles maken melody...

12
00:02:23,710 --> 00:02:27,077
"that slepen all the night
with open eye-


13
00:02:28,815 --> 00:02:32,717
"so priketh them nature in their corages-

14
00:02:32,819 --> 00:02:36,118
"then longen folk
to go on pilgrimages...


15
00:02:36,222 --> 00:02:40,318
"and palmers for to seken
stranger strands...


16
00:02:40,426 --> 00:02:43,987
"to distant shrines
known in sundry lands, ;


17
00:02:45,064 --> 00:02:48,397
"And especially from
every shire's end of England...


18
00:02:48,501 --> 00:02:50,469
"to Canterbury they wend...

19
00:02:51,504 --> 00:02:54,940
"the holy blissful martyr for to seek...

20
00:02:55,041 --> 00:02:58,636
that them hath helpen
when that they were weak. "

00:04:33,339 --> 00:04:35,773
[Narrator]
600 years have passed.


24
00:04:35,875 --> 00:04:39,834
What would they see,
Dan Chaucer and his goodly company today?


25
00:04:39,946 --> 00:04:42,039
The hills and valleys are the same.

26
00:04:42,148 --> 00:04:45,311
Gone are the forests
since the enclosures came.


27
00:04:45,418 --> 00:04:47,943
Hedgerows have sprung.
The land is under plow...


28
00:04:48,054 --> 00:04:50,955
and orchards bloom
with blossom on the bough.


29
00:04:52,125 --> 00:04:54,650
Sussex and Kent are like a garden fair...

30
00:04:54,761 --> 00:04:57,628
but sheep still graze
upon the ridges there.


31
00:04:57,730 --> 00:05:00,358
The Pilgrims' Way
still winds above the weald...


32
00:05:00,466 --> 00:05:03,333
through wood and break
and many a fertile field.


33
00:05:04,704 --> 00:05:07,696
But though so little's changed
since Chaucer's day...


34
00:05:08,808 --> 00:05:11,936
another kind of pilgrim
walks the way.


35
00:05:19,752 --> 00:05:23,017
Alas,
when on our pilgrimage we wend...


36
00:05:23,122 --> 00:05:26,558
we modern pilgrims
see nojourney's end.


37
00:05:26,659 --> 00:05:29,628
Gone are the ring ofhooves,
the creak of wheel.


38
00:05:29,729 --> 00:05:32,562
Down in the valley
runs our road of steel.


39
00:05:33,599 --> 00:05:37,296
No genial host at sinking of the sun
welcomes us in.


40
00:05:37,403 --> 00:05:39,928
Ourjourney's just begun.
