The True Knight - Poem by Stephen Hawes

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.
