  10. 10. THE GLOVE AND THE LIONSBy Leigh Hunt 1784 - 1859King Francis was a hearty king, and loved a royal sport,And one day, as his lions fought, sat looking on the court;The nobles filld the benches, and the ladies in their pride,And mongst them sat the Count de Lorge, with one for whom he sighd:And truly twas a gallant thing to see that crowning show,Valour and love, and a king above, and the royal beasts below.Rampd and roard the lions, with horrid laughing jaws;They bit, they glared, gave blows like beams, a wind went with their paws;With wallowing might and stifled roar they rolld on one another,Till all the pit with sand and mane was in a thunderous smother;The bloody foam above the bars came whisking through the air;Said Francis then, "Faith, gentlemen, were better here than there."De Lorges love oerheard the king, a beauteous lively dameWith smiling lips and sharp bright eyes, which always seemd the same;She thought, the count my lover is brave as brave can be;He surely would do wondrous things to show his love of me;King, ladies, lovers, all look on; the occasion is divine;Ill drop my glove to prove his love; great glory shall be mine. EIFSjamesleighhunt_theglov eandthelions.mp3She droppd her glove to prove his love, then lookd at him and smiled;He bowd and in a moment leapd among the lions wild:The leap was quick, return was quick, he has regaind the place,Then threw the glove, but not with love, right in the ladys face."By God ! " Said Francis, "rightly done ! " And he rose from where he sat;"No love," quoth he, "but vanity, sets love a task like that."
  11. 11. Courtiers and ladies are whiling away time in the rooms and galleries of the Royal Palace. From an elevated gallery they can see a cage with four ferocious African lions. Doña Ana lets her glove fall into the cage in order to test the gallantry of the courtiers. The Count of León walks into the cage, rescues the glove, and before giving it back to Doña Ana he slaps her across the face, saying, Take this, and henceforward do not, for a mere glove, stake el honor of so many well-born men. If there is any one who does not approve of what I have done, let him come forward to the field of el honor to uphold his opinion according to the laws of chivalry.El HONOR IS PASSION
  12. 12. LADY OF CARLISLETraditional USA Folk Song Down in Carlisle there lived a lady And when she did recover, Being most beautiful and gay, Threw her fan down in the lions den She was determined to live a lady, Saying, "Which of you to gain a lady No man on earth could her betray. Will return her fan again?" Unless it were a man of honor Then up spoke the brave lieutenant, A man of honor and high degree, Raised his voice both loud and clear, And then approached two loving soldiers, Saying "You know I am a dear lover of women, This fair lady for to see. But Ill not give my life for love." One being a brave lieutenant Then up spoke this brave sea captain. A brave lieutenant and a man of war He raised his voice both loud and high, The other being a brave sea captain, Saying "You know I am a dear lover of women Captain of the ship that come from far. I will return her fan or die." Then up spoke this fair young lady, Down in the lions den, he boldly entered, Saying "I cant be but one mans bride, The lions being both wild and fierce, But if youll come back tomorrow morning, He marched around and in among them, On this case we will decide." Safely returned her fan again. She ordered her a span of horses And when she saw her true lover coming. A span of horses at her command; Seeing no harm had been done to him, And down the road these three did travel She threw herself against his bosom, Till they come to the lions den. Saying, "Here is the prize that you have won.“ There she stopped and there she halted These two soldiers stood gazing round; And for the space of half an hour This young lady lies speechless on the ground. Saying, "Here is the prize that you have won."
