So Chaucer signals in the Wife of Bath's Tale: But now can no man see non elves mo, For the grete charite and the preiers Of limitours and of other povre frers That serchen every land and every streme, As thikke as motes in the sonne berne, Blissing halles, chambres, kichenes, and boures, Citees and burghes, castles highe and toures, Thropes and bernes, shepenes and dairies, This maketh that there be no fairies.
