  • Hang out our banners on the outward walls; The cry is still, "They come:" our castle’s strength Will laugh a siege to scorn: here let them lie Till famine and the ague eat them up: Were they not forc’d with those that should be ours, We might have met them dareful, beard to beard, And beat them backward home.
