Listen to the lad! ” At this all laughed aloud, and one said, “Well boasted, thou fair infant, well boasted! ” At this Robin grew right mad. “Hark ye,” said he; “yonder, at the glade’s end, I see a herd of deer, even more than threescore rods distant. ” cried he who had spoken first. “And here are twenty marks. ” Then Robin took his good yew bow in his hand, and placing the tip at his instep, he strung it right deftly; then he nocked a broad clothyard arrow, and, raising the bow, drew the gray goose-feather to his ear; the next moment the bowstring rang and the arrow sped down the glade as a sparrowhawk skims in a northern wind.
