THE FIFTH BOOKE OF
THE FAERIE QUEENE
CONTAYNING THE LEGEND OF ARTEGALL, OR OY

JUSTICE.

amit.

CANTO V.
Artegall fights with Radigund,

And is subdew'd by guile :
He is by her emprisoned,

But wrought by Clarins wile.

Myers
soone as day forth dawning from the East
Nights humid curtaine from the heavens

withdrew,
And earely calling forth both man and beast
Comaunded them their daily workes renew,
These noble warriors, mindefull to pursew
The last daies purpose of their vowed fight,
Them selves thereto preparde in order dew

The Knight, as best was seeming for a Knight,
And th’ Amazon, as best it likt her selfe to dight.
· All in a Camis light of purple silke
Woven
uppon

with silver, subtly wrought,
And quilted uppon sattin white as milke:
Trayled with ribbands diversly distraught,
Like as the workeman had their courses taught;
Which was short tucked for light motion
Up to her ham; but, when she list, it raught

Downe to her lowest heele; and thereuppon
She wore for her defence a mayled habergeon.
