    Agincourt

    FAIR stood the wind for France
    When we our sails advance,
    Nor now to prove our chance
       Longer will tarry;
    But putting to the main,
    At Caux, the mouth of Seine,
    With all his martial train
       Landed King Harry.

    And taking many a fort,
    Furnish'd in warlike sort,
    Marcheth tow'rds Agincourt
       In happy hour;
    Skirmishing day by day
    With those that stopp'd his way,
    Where the French gen'ral lay
       With all his power.

    Which, in his height of pride,
    King Henry to deride,
    His ransom to provide
       Unto him sending;
    Which he neglects the while
    As from a nation vile,
    Yet with an angry smile
       Their fall portending.

    And turning to his men,
    Quoth our brave Henry then,
    'Though they to one be ten
       Be not amazed:
    Yet have we well begun;
    Battles so bravely won
    Have ever to the sun
       By fame been raised.

    'And for myself (quoth he)
    This my full rest shall be:
    England ne'er mourn for me
       Nor more esteem me:
    Victor I will remain
    Or on this earth lie slain,
    Never shall she sustain
       Loss to redeem me.

    'Poitiers and Cressy tell,
    When most their pride did swell,
    Under our swords they fell:
       No less our skill is
    Than when our grandsire great,
    Claiming the regal seat,
    By many a warlike feat
       Lopp'd the French lilies.'

    The Duke of York so dread
    The eager vaward led;
    With the main Henry sped
       Among his henchmen.
    Excester had the rear,
    A braver man not there;
    O Lord, how hot they were
       On the false Frenchmen!

    They now to fight are gone,
    Armour on armour shone,
    Drum now to drum did groan,
       To hear was wonder;
    That with the cries they make
    The very earth did shake:
    Trumpet to trumpet spake,
       Thunder to thunder.

    Well it thine age became,
    O noble Erpingham,
    Which didst the signal aim
       To our hid forces!
    When from a meadow by,
    Like a storm suddenly
    The English archery
       Stuck the French horses.

    With Spanish yew so strong,
    Arrows a cloth-yard long
    That like to serpents stung,
       Piercing the weather;
    None from his fellow starts,
    But playing manly parts,
    And like true English hearts
       Stuck close together.

    When down their bows they threw,
    And forth their bilbos drew,
    And on the French they flew,
       Not one was tardy;
    Arms were from shoulders sent,
    Scalps to the teeth were rent,
    Down the French peasants went--
       Our men were hardy.

    This while our noble king,
    His broadsword brandishing,
    Down the French host did ding
       As to o'erwhelm it;
    And many a deep wound lent,
    His arms with blood besprent,
    And many a cruel dent
       Bruised his helmet.

    Gloster, that duke so good,
    Next of the royal blood,
    For famous England stood
       With his brave brother;
    Clarence, in steel so bright,
    Though but a maiden knight,
    Yet in that furious fight
       Scarce such another.

    Warwick in blood did wade,
    Oxford the foe invade,
    And cruel slaughter made
       Still as they ran up;
    Suffolk his axe did ply,
    Beaumont and Willoughby
    Bare them right doughtily,
       Ferrers and Fanhope.

    Upon Saint Crispin's Day
    Fought was this noble fray,
    Which fame did not delay
       To England to carry.
    O when shall English men
    With such acts fill a pen?
    Or England breed again
       Such a King Harry? read more »

    The Burial of Sir John Moore at Corunna
