"It shall go hard with him through thee, unconquerable blade"

from: Lyrics and Old World Idylls (Frontispiece) -  1907

"He ceased: and Accolon held up the sword
Excalibur and said, 'It shall go hard
With him through thee, unconquerable blade,
Whoe'er he be, who on my Queen hath laid
Insult or injury!'" (Cawein's "Accolon of Gaul," p. 270)
