Great Regulars: The speaker goes on to describe his vision

of a beautiful garden. He looks in vain for an entrance to this enchanted place; walking around he sees the outside walls depicted with frightening paintings of Envy, Avarice, Poverty, and Old Age.

Suddenly, a beautiful maiden lets him inside, through a tiny gate.

from Christopher Nield: The Epoch Times: The Antidote--Classic Poetry for Modern Life: A Reading From 'The Romance of the Rose,' Translated by Chaucer
