And they, like straggling slaves for pillage fighting, (429)
Obdurate vassals fell exploits effecting, (430)
In bloody death and ravishment delighting, (431)
Nor children's tears nor mothers' groans respecting, (432)
Swell in their pride, the onset still expecting:
Anon his beating heart, alarum striking, (434)
Gives the hot charge and bids them do their liking.
