Side 185 - List wound, he gave three legacies : his soule to his Lord Jesus, his body to be lodged in Flemish earth, his heart to be sent to his dear wife in England. Here lies his wounded heart, for whome One kingdom was too small a roome : Two kingdoms therefore have thought good to part So stout a body and so brave a heart.
Side 203 - Full on this casement shone the wintry moon, And threw warm gules on Madeline's fair breast, As down she knelt for heaven's grace and boon ; Rose-bloom fell on her hands, together prest, And on her silver cross soft amethyst, And on her hair a glory, like a saint: She seem'da splendid angel, newly drest, Save wings, for heaven: Porphyro grew faint: She knelt, so pure a thing, so free from mortal taint.
Side 22 - His deeds of arms form the subject of a romance, or rather warlike song, composed towards the end of the ninth century, or the beginning of the tenth, under the title of Roman de Guillaume an court nez.
