King Corsalis stands on the other side;

He comes from Barbary; a soul of guile.

Still speaks he there not unlike vassal true

Who would not for the gold of heav'n be base:

"If there I find Rollànd, we meet in fight.

I am the third; now choose ye out the fourth."

See you the spurring Malprimis de Brigal,

Faster on foot than runs the fastest steed?

Before Marsile in a loud voice he cries:

"I shall my body take to Ronceval;

If there I find Rollànd, by me he dies."
