XLIII

"Fair Master Guenes," says Marsilies the King,

"Such men are mine, fairer than tongue can sing,

Of knights I can four hundred thousand bring

So I may fight with Franks and with their King."

Answers him Guenes: "Not on this journeying!

Save of pagans a great loss suffering.

Leave you the fools, wise counsel following;

To the Emperour such wealth of treasure give

That every Frank at once is marvelling.

For twenty men that you shall now send in

To France the Douce he will repair, that King;

In the rereward will follow after him

Both his nephew, count Rollant, as I think,

And Oliver, that courteous paladin;

Dead are the counts, believe me if you will.

Charles will behold his great pride perishing,

For battle then he’ll have no more the skill."
