“ How they'll greet us”-and all in moment his roan,
Rolled neck and croup over, lay dead a stone :
And there was my Rowland to bear the whole weight
Of the news which alone could save Aix from her fate,
With his nostrils like pits full of blood to the brim,
And with circles of red to his eye-socket's rim.
IX. Then I cast loose my buff-coat, each holster let fall, Shook off both my jack-boots, let go belt and all, Stood up in the stirrup, leaned, patted his ear, Called my Rowland his pet name, my horse without peer ; Clapped my hands, laughed and sang, any noise, bad or good, Till at length into Aix Rowland galloped and stood.
X. And all I remember is friends flocking round As I sat with his head 'twixt my knees on the ground, And no voice but was praising this Rowland of mine, As I poured down his throat our last measure of wine, Which (the burgesses voted by common consent) Was no more than his due who brought good news from Ghent.
