THE SQUIRE'S TALE.
Call up him, that left half told
The story of Cambuscan bold,
Of Camball, and of Algarsife,
And who had Canace to wife,
That own'd the virtuous ring and glass;
And of the wondrous horse of brass
On which the Tartar king did ride;
And if aught else great bards beside
Where more is meant than meets the ear.
Thus, Night, oft see me in thy pale career.
IN Sarra's city once, in Tartary, reign'd
A king, who war with Russia's tribes maintain'd; By which there fell in arms, of splendid fame, Full many a knight; Cambuscan was his name.
