Here’s the passage is given:
A Gentle Knight was pricking on the plane,
Ycladd in mighty arms and silver shield,
Wherein old dints of deep wounds did remain,
The cruel marks of many a bloody field;
Yet arms till that time did he never wield:
His angry steed did chide his foaming bit,
As much disdaining to the curb to yield:
Full jolly knight, he seemed, and fair did sit,
As one for knightly guests and fierce encounters fit.
