Shattering was the shock;  they shunned nothing
Where the shrubs brightly shone under the shimmering
The Roman ranks retreated a little,
Giving ground in their rearguard’s direction.

So rapidly they rode that the air rang
With the sound of steel and spikes and splendid gold mail.

Cador Launches Battle

Morte Arthure (Alliterative) (Lines 1759-65)
