First Line: These prov'd themselves from pegasus derived
Last Line: Perchance, as youthful now as I was then.
Subject(s): Horse Racing; Knights & Knighthood; Youth

THESE prov'd themselves from Pegasus derived:
There doth the northern spur oft draw a rayne
From the fleet flanks of Barbary or Spayne,
And wilde Arabia, whose tincture dyed
Greene earth with purple staynes of bestiall pride.
* * * * * * * * * *
Lo! but too ofte of man and horse, when young,
The naked heele and hammered hoofe I sung;
Which now to heare, or reade, might please some men,
Perchance, as youthful now as I was then.
