The Defence of Guenevere, by William Morris

Sir Giles’ War-Song

Ho! is there any will ride with me,

Sir Giles, le bon des barrières?

The clink of arms is good to hear,

The flap of pennons fair to see;

Ho! is there any will ride with me,

Sir Giles, le bon des barrières?

The leopards and lilies are fair to see;

St. George Guienne! right good to hear:

Ho! is there any will ride with me,

Sir Giles, le bon des barrières?

I stood by the barrier,

My coat being blazon’d fair to see;

Ho! is there any will ride with me,

Sir Giles, le bon des barrières?

Clisson put out his head to see,

And lifted his basnet up to hear;

I pull’d him through the bars to ME,

Sir Giles; le bon des barrières.
