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


There shall young Hotspur with a fury led

Meet with thy forward son as fierce as he:

There warlike Worcester, long experienced


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.
