"See there! It's Launcelot!"
"How swiftly he goes!"
"As if enchafed by a fiend!"
"The splendid muscles of his horse move rhythmically under the drenchèd skin of same!"
"By Jesu, he is in a vast hurry!"
But now he pulls up the horse and sits for a moment, lost in thought!"
"Now he wags his great head in daffish fashion!"
"He reins the horse about and puts the golden spurs to her!"
"But that is the direction from which he lately came with such excess of speed!"

"Not Launcelot! Launcelot is the greatest horseman in the realm!"
"Look you! Launcelot and his horse have plunged into a deep mire!"
