Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The Third Booke. ¹ 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 t’enjoy your life.
