He nothing common did or mean Upon that memorable scene: But with his leener eye The axe's edge did try.
My sick heart shows That I must yield my body to the earth, And, by my fall, the conquest to my foe. Thus yields the cedar to the axe's edge, Whose arms gave shelter to the princely eagle; Under whose shade the ramping lion slept: Whose top-branch overpeer'd Jove's spreading tree, And kept low shrubs from winter's powerful wind.
Thus yields the cedar to the axe's edge, Whose arms gave shelter to the princely eagle.william shakespeare
