"I had four blak arrows under my belt,Four for the greefs that I have felt,Four for the number of ill menneThat have oppressid me now and then.One is gone; one is wele sped;Old Apulyaird is dead.One is for Maister Bennet Hatch,That burned Grimstone, walls and thatch.One for Sir Oliver Oates,That cut Sir Harry Shelton's throat.Sir Daniel, ye shull have the fourt;We shall think it fair sport.Ye shull each have your own part,A blak arrow in each blak heart.Get ye to your knees for to pray;Ye are ded theeves, by yea and nay!JON AMEND-ALLOf the Green Wood,And his jolly fellaweship"
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
