King Richard II, [3.3.42-50]. Bolingbroke. “If not, I’ll use the advantage of my power,/ And lay the summer’s dust with show’rs of blood/ Rain’d from the wounds of slughtered Englishmen–/ The which, how far off from the mind of Bolingbroke/ It is, such crimson tempest should bedrench/ The fresh green lap of fair King Richard’s land,/ My stooping duty tenderly shall show./ Go signify as much, while here we march/ Upon the grassy carpet of this plain.”
