THE LAY OF THE CIDGreat company of people marched with the Campeador. I am come wife much honored by the Creator s grace And sonsin law bring thee whence our fame shall wax apace. The place where they found lodging Ansarera is its name. My lord the Cid saw somewhat and was well pleased thereby For looked forth before him lifting up his eyes on high. With them will do nothing except at thy command

At Fronchales rested they. More than twenty had he slain. But now of Felez Munoz will tell the tale once more. In such wise have they valued it and on parchment set down That for silver marks three thousand Alcocer Cid did sell. He kissed thy hands begged thee thine acceptance to accord. The next day in morning when at last sun outshone Then did Jerome Bishop his matin song intone. At last has night passed over and breaketh now the dawn many worthy nobles there to place have drawn For behold that combat wherefore their mirth was high. Then they bore home booty up Henares stream Past Guadalajara. He kissed his hand fairly gave him greeting then To God now thanks be given that see thee lord again. Above the Moorish battle two flagsin chief arose But of their mingling pennons number who shall name Now squadrons Moors marching right onward came That Cid and his henchmen they might capture out hand. And the next day in dawning when soon sun should rise Cid was armed with him all men of his emprise. The place where they found lodging Ansarera is its name. His heart was glad within him and smile on face
