Poem by Thomas Urquhart


Epigrams. The Third Booke. 14. The Generous speech of a Noble Cavallier, after he had disarmed his adversary at the single Combate


Though with my Ràper, for the guerdon, 
	Your fault deserveth, I may pierce ye: 
Your penitence, in craving pardon 
	Transpassions my revenge in mercy; 
And wils me both to end this present strife, 
And give you leave in peace tenjoy your life.
