Slay not my youngest brother here,, He is my fathers pride."
" Away, for I would scorne to owe,                      ios
My life to the[e], false maide !" The youngest cried, and aim'd a blow • That lit on Robins head.
Then Robin leand against the tree,
His life nie gone did seeme ;                           no
His eyes did swim, he could not see
The maiden start betweene.
It was not long ere Robin Hood Could welde his sword so bright;
Upon his feete he firmly stood,                            113
And did renew the fight;
Untill the tanner scarce could heave
His weapon in the aire ; But Robin would not him bereave
Of life, and left him there.                                 120
Then to the greenewood did he fly,
And with him went the maide; For him she vowd that she would dye,
He'd live for her, he said-
Finis. T. Fleming.
