The Challenge
By Fitz-James O’Brien (1828–1862)
 
A WARRIOR hung his plumèd helm
On the rugged trunk of an aged elm;
“Where is the knight so bold,” he cried,
“That dares my haughty crest deride?”
 
The wind came by with a sullen howl,        5
And dashed the helm on the pathway foul,
And shook in scorn each sturdy limb,—
For where was the knight that could fight with him?
