THE SEVEN CHAMPIONS
Through shady groves and woods they went, In search of fortune's smiles.
The Christian champion David, went z*
To the Tartarian court, Where at their tilt and tournament,
And such lite royal sport, He overthrew the only son
Of the Count Palatine ; 230
This noble action being done
His fame began to shine.
The young Count's sad and sudden death
Turn'd all their joys to grief; He bleeding lay, bereaved of breath, 235
The father's son in chief; But lords and ladies blazed the fame
Of our brave champion bold ; Saying, they ought to write his name
In characters of gold. 2*0
Here have I writ a fair account
Of each heroic deed, Done by these knights, which will surmount
All those that shall succeed. The ancient chronicles of kings, ^
Ere since the world begun, Can't boast of such renowned things
As these brave knights have done.
