De summa gestorum Starchateri.


CAP. VII.

                                        DEMVM post egregiam facinorum suorum laudem insenium
                                        vergens, hoc succincto carmine totius vitæ, &
                                        militiæ suæ studium summatim sic expressit, autore Saxone:
Carmina Starchateri de vita sua.                                                 At mihi ( si recolo ) nascenti fata dedere
                                                Bella sequi, belloque mori miscere tumultus,
                                                Invigilare armis, vitam exercere cruentam.
                                                Castra quietis inps colui, pacemque perosus,
                                                Sub signis Gradive tuis discrimine summo
        Consenui, victorque metu pugnare decorum,
        Turpe vacare ratus, crebras committere cædes
        Egregium duxi, & strages celebrare frequentes.
        Sæpe graves bello Reges concurrere vidi,
        Et clypeos, galeasque teri, crudescere campos
        Sanguine, loricas affixa cuspide rumpi,
        Vndique thoraces admisso cedere ferro,
        Luxuriare feras inhumato milite pastas.
        Hic aliquis forte egregii conaminis autor,
        Marte manuque potens, medium dum pugnat in hostem,
        Intentam capiti loricam diffidit: alter
        Casside perfossa, ferrumque in vertice mersit.
Olo.         Quando ter Olonis summo discrimine nati
        Expugnator eram: nanque agmine prorsus in illo,
        Aut gladium fregit manus, aut obstantia fudit.
Curetes.         Hæc gravitas ferientis erat. Quid quando Curetum
Littus.
