Andrew Marvell: A Pict Kickabout, Early Doors (Post-Eikonoklastic)

 
Oliver Cromwell's face (statue outside Guildhall Art Gallery, London): photo by Garry Knight, 2006

The Pict no shelter now shall find
Within his party-colour'd Mind;
..But from this Valour sad
..Shrink underneath the Plad:

Happy if in the tufted brake
The English Hunter him mistake;
..Nor lay his Hounds in near
..The Caledonian Deer.

Cromwell at Dunbar, 3 September 1650: Andrew Carrick Gow, c. 1866

But thou the Wars and Fortunes Son
March indefatigably on;
..And for the last effect
..Still keep thy Sword erect:

Besides the Force it has to fright
The Spirits of the shady Night,
..The same Arts that did gain
..A Pow'r must it maintain.
