F
A bow-shot from her bower-eaves,
He rode between the barley-sheaves,
The sun came dazzling thro' the leaves
And flamed upon the brazen graves
Of bold Sir Lancelot.

R
Tis only noble to be good.
Kind hearts are more than coronets,
And simple faith than Norman blood.
A
Twere best at once to sink to peace,
Like birds the charming serpent draws,
To drop head-foremost in the jaws
Of vacant darkness and to cease.
N

'This mounting wave will roll us shorewards soon.'
In the afternoon they came unto a land
In which it seemèd always afternoon.
K
Forward the Light Brigade!'
Was there a man dismayed?
