Stephen Hawes

The True Knight

FOR knighthood is not in the feats of warre,
As for to fight in quarrel right or wrong,
But in a cause which truth can not defarre:
    He ought himself for to make sure and strong,
    Justice to keep mixt with mercy among:
        And no quarrell a knight ought to take
        But for a truth, or for the common's sake.
