                     <div class="line">The pretty-vaulting sea refused to drown me,</div>

                     <div class="line">The splitting rocks cower'd in the sinking sands</div>
                     <div class="line">And would not dash me with their ragged sides,</div>
                     <div class="line">Because thy flinty heart, more hard than they,</div>

                     <div class="line">I took a costly jewel from my neck,</div>

                     <div class="line">And even with this I lost fair England's view</div>
                     <div class="line">And bid mine eyes be packing with my heart</div>
                     <div class="line">And call'd them blind and dusky spectacles,</div>

                              <div class="line">Nor shall proud Lancaster usurp my right,</div>
                              <div class="line">Nor hold the sceptre in his childish fist,</div>
                              <div class="line">Nor wear the diadem upon his head,</div>
                              <div class="line">Whose church-like humours fits not for a crown.</div>
                              <div class="line">Then, York, be still awhile, till time do serve:</div>
                              <div class="line">Watch thou and wake when others be asleep,</div>
                              <div class="line">To pry into the secrets of the state;</div>
                              <div class="line">Till Henry, surfeiting in joys of love,</div>
                              <div class="line">With his new bride and England's dear-bought queen,</div>
                              <div class="line">And Humphrey with the peers be fall'n at jars:</div>
                              <div class="line">Then will I raise aloft the milk-white rose,</div>
                              <div class="line">With whose sweet smell the air shall be perfumed;</div>
                              <div class="line">And in my standard bear the arms of York</div>
                              <div class="line">To grapple with the house of Lancaster;</div>
                              <div class="line">And, force perforce, I'll make him yield the crown,</div>
                              <div class="line">Whose bookish rule hath pull'd fair England down.</div>
