" Let him take that wand in that window,
And strike three strokes on that steed;                      aso
And then he will spring forth of his hand,
As sparke doth out of gleede."
Then bespake him the Greene Knight,
[Half a page is wantingJ]
A lowd blast.............
And then bespake Sir Bredbeddle,                             set
To the feend these words said hee: Says, " I coniure thee, thou Burlow-beanie, The powder-box thou feitch me."
Then forth is gone Burlow-beanie,
As fast as he cold hie ;                                                        270
And feich he did the powder-box,
And came againe by and by.
Then Sir Tristeram tooke powder forth of that box, And blent it with warme sweet milke; And there put it unto the home,                                  275
And swilled it about in that ilke.
Then he tooke the home in his hand,
And a lowd blast he blew;
He rent the home up to the midst,
All his fellowes this they knew.                                    2*
