Thomas Percy Never Poems
- 1. The Boy And The Mantle
In the third day of May,
To Carleile did come
A kind curteous child,
That cold much of wisdome.
- 2. Sir Lancelot Du Lake
- 3. King Ryence's Challenge
As it fell out on a Pentecost day,
King Arthur at Camelot kept his court royall,
With his faire queene dame Guenever the gay,
And many bold barons sitting in hall,
- 4. King Arthur's Death
On Trinitye Mondaye in the morne,
This sore battayle was doom'd to bee,
Where manye a knighte cry'd, Well-awaye!
Alacke, it was the more pittÃ¬e.
