Having this day, my horse, my hand, my lance,

Guided so well that I obtained the prize,

Both by the judgment of the English eyes,

And of some sent from that sweet enemy,-France;

Horsemen my skill in horsemanship advance;

Townsfolk my strength; a daintier judge applies

His praise to sleight, which from good use d

oth rise;

Some lucky wits impute it but to chance;

Others, because of both sides I do take

My blood from them, who did excel in this,

Think Nature me a man of arms did make.

How far they shot awry! the true cause is,

STELLA look'd on, and from her heavenly face

Sent forth the beams which made so fair my race.
