The Civil Wars Between the Two Houses of Lancaster and York (Selection)


There lo that new-appearing glorious star

Wonder of Arms, the terror of the field

Young Henry, laboring where the stoutest are

And even the stoutest forces back to yield,


There in that hand, boldened to blood and war,

That must the sword in wondrous actions wield:

But better hadst thou learn'd with others' blood

A less expense to us, to thee more good.
