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

    111

    Hadst thou not there lent present speedy aid

    210

    To thy endanger'd father nearly tired,

    Whom fierce encountering Douglas overlaid,

    That day had there his troublous life expired:

    Heroical Courageous Blunt arrayed

    In habit like as was the king attir'd

    215

    And deem'd for him, excus'd that fate with his,

    For he had what his Lord did hardly miss.
