English History in Contemporary Poetry, Vol. 3 free pdf Excerpt from English History in Contemporary Poetry, Vol. 3: The Tudor Monarchy 1485 to 1588 6 English History In Contemporary Poetry "Thus God, by grace, did well combineThe Red Rose and the White in marriage.Being oned right clear doth shineIn all clearness and virtuous courage-Of whose right and loyal lineage, Prince Henry is sprung, our King to be, After his father, by right good equity." Almost at the same moment as Hawes was writing this loyal dedication, another poet, William Dunbar, was celebrating the marriage between the Princess Margaret and James IV. of Scotland, which was eventually to make the Stuarts Kings of Great Britain. Dunbar has been described as "on the whole the most considerable poet of our land between Chaucer and Spenser," and his marriage song, which he called The Thistle and The Rose, as "perhaps the happiest political allegory in our language"- so we may well quote enough to show the national enthusiasm which the event evidently inspired in a Scottish politician of some experience. The poet is awakened by "fresh May," and bidden write something in her honour- she leads him into a "lusty garden gent," where Dame Nature brings before them every bird and beast and flower to do reverence to May, "their maker." The beasts and birds pass in review - "heraldry has never been more skilfully handled" - and "Then called she all flowers that grow on field, Discerning all their fashions and effeirs [bearings].Upon the awful Thistle she beheld, And saw him kept with a bush of spears: Considering him so able for the wars, A radiant crown of rubies she him gave, And said, 'In field go forth, and 'fend the lave! "'And sen thou art a king, thou be discreet!Herb without virtue thou hold not of such priceAs herb of virtue and of odour sweet!And let no nettle vile, and full of vice, Her fellow to the goodly Fleur de Lis!Nor let no wild weed, full of churlishness, Compare her till the Lily's nobleness! 1 J. Nichol in Ward's English Poets.2 Part of Dunbar's poem on London has been quoted at the end of the preceding leaflet in the present series.
