118            BEAVE LORD WILL01JGHBET.
This news was brought to England
With all the speed might be, And soon our gracious queen was told
Of this same victory. " 0 this is brave Lord Willoughbey,
My love that ever won ; Of all the lords of honour,
'Tis he great deeds hath done."                 so
To the souldiers that were maimed
And wounded in the fray, The queen allowed a pension
Of fifteen pence a day; And from all costs and charges                      «
She quit and set them free: And this she did all for the sake
Of brave Lord Willoughbey.
Then courage, noble Englishmen,
And never be dismaid;                                90
If that we be but one to ten,
We will not be afraid To fight with foraign enemies,
And set our nation free : And thus I end the bloody bout                     95
Of brave Lord Willoughbey.
