If on your death-bed you doe lye,
What needs the tale you are tellin:
I cannot keep you from your death;
Farewell, sayd Barbara Allen.
-- Thomas Percy. Barbara Allen's Cruelty.

I saw pale kings, and princes too,
Pale warriors, death-pale were they all;
Who cry'd... "La belle Dame sans Merci
Hath thee in thrall!"
-- John Keats. La Belle Dame Sans Merci.
