" I never hurt fair maid in all my time, Nor at mine end shall it be ; But give me my bent bow in my hand, And a broad arrow I'll let flee, And where this arrow is taken up, There shall my grave digged be.
Strana 15 - Showers soft and steaming, Hot and breathless air. Tired of listless dreaming, Through the lazy day ; Jovial wind of winter Turn us out to play ! Sweep the golden reed-beds; Crisp the lazy dyke ; Hunger into madness Every plunging pike.
Strana 41 - This England never did, (nor never shall,) Lie at the proud foot of a conqueror, But when it first did help to wound itself.

Who can over-ride you? Let the horses go ! Chime, ye dappled darlings, Down the roaring blast You shall see a fox die Ere an hour be past.

Strana 111 - ... be held ; and twice, a shire-gemot ; and let there be present the bishop of the shire and the ealdorman, and there both expound as well the law of God as the secular law.
Strana 86 - By the Lord, before whom this relic is holy, I will be to N. faithful and true, and love all that he loves, and shun all that he shuns, according to God's law, and according to the world's principles, and never, by will nor by force, by word nor by work, do...
