Littell's Living Age/Volume 1/Issue 1/Sir Hilary charged at Agincourt
SIR Hilary charged at Agincourt,
Sooth! ’t was an awful day?
And though, in that old age of sport,
The rufflers of the camp and court
Had little time to pray,
’T is said Sir Hilary muttered there
Two syllables by way of prayer.
My first to all the brave and proud
Who see to-morrow’s sun;
My next, with her cold and quiet cloud,
To those who find their dewy shroud,
Before to-day’s he done!
And both together to all blue eyes
That weep when a warrior nobly dies?
