    Upon Saint Crispin’s day
    Fought was this noble fray,
    Which fame did not delay
    To England to carry.

    With such acts fill a pen,
    Or England breed again
    Such a King Harry?

    That, when tyranny oppressed,
    Hewed for our fathers from the wild
    A land wherein to rest.
