Most valiant Knight is Margariz. 'Mid all

Beauteous, strong, slender, quick of hand. He spurs

His horse and charges Olivier; beneath

The boss of purest gold his shield breaks down,

Then at his side a pointed lance he aims;

But God protects him, for the blow ne'er reached

The flesh. The point grazed only, wounding not.

Then Margariz unhindered rides away

And sounds his horn to rally his own men.
