Brothers Void Of Fear!

Illustration:  Lions.  From the story "Valentine And Orson"  The Three Bears’ Picture Book.  Illustrated by Walter Crane.  George Routledge and Sons: London & New York.

But Orson threw the Green Knight down, and bound him with a chain,

And set the lady free; both brothers then start off to gain

The Green Knight’s castle-gates – two roaring lions keep guard there,

But down they crouched when they beheld the brothers void of fear.

Now, in that land there dwelt a man, the Green Knight he was called,

Who by his strength and magic arts a lady fair enthralled,

And kept in prison dark and strong, and none could set her free;

Not even Valentine prevailed, with all his bravery.
