Prince Edward all in gold, as he great Jove had been, The Mountfords all in plumes, like estridges were seen.
All furnish'd, all in arms; All plum'd, like estridges that with the wind Baited, like eagles having lately bath'd.william shakespeare
All plum'd like estridges, that with the wind; Baited like eagles having lately bath'd; Glittering in golden coats, like images; As full of spirit as the month of May, And gorgeous as the sun at midsummer; Wanton as youthful goats, wild as young bulls. I saw young Harry, with his beaver on, His cuisses on his thighs, gallantly arm’d, Rise from the ground like feather’d Mercury, And vaulted with such ease into his seat, As if an angel dropp’d down from the clouds, To turn and wind a fiery Pegasus, And witch the world with noble horsemanship.
