"That shall they," say the knights, "Of yours as of the other, or dearly shall you pay therefor!" Right wroth waxeth Sir Lancelot, and cometh to the knight, and smiteth him with his spear amidst the breast with such a thrust that it passeth half an ell beyond, and overthroweth him and his horse together.
