Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages
"The head was hewn off and fell to the floor; Many found it at their feet, as forth it rolled; The blood gushed from the body, bright on the green, Yet fell not the fellow, nor faltered a whit, But stoutly he starts forth upon stiff shanks, And as all stood staring he stretched forth his hand, Laid hold of his head and heaved it aloft, Then goes to the green steed, grasps the bridle, Steps into the stirrup, bestrides his mount, And his head by the hair in his hand holds, And as steady he sits in the stately saddle As he had met with no mishap, nor missing were his head."
God, I love literature.
