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

    97

    There shall young Hotspur with a fury led

    Meet with thy forward son as fierce as he:

    There warlike Worcester, long experienced

    100

    In foreign arms, shall come t'encounter thee:

    There Douglas to thy Stafford shall make head:

    There Vernon for thy valiant Blunt shall be:

    There shalt thou find a doubtful bloody day,

    Though sickness keep Northumberland away.
