Downstairs the Earl was telling Geraint that last night the Sparrow-hawk had sent back all their treasures.
And Geraint thought it was not possible that so poor a place could help him in what he desired.
In the hall Geraint dismounted and left his horse, and his host took him into an upper chamber where were two women.
Sir Geraint asked where was Earl Inewl and his wife and daughter.
I care not,” said Geraint, “though it displease him that I sit in the chair.
And the knight smiled at the rusty arms and shield of Sir Geraint.
But Sir Geraint couched his lance, and caught the other on the edge of his shield, and the spear passed through his body.
So that Sir Geraint should die, he commanded that no leech should be sent for.
But all the time Geraint could not help thinking, ‘Enid is longing for the knights and ladies she knew at the court.’
Enid threw her arms about Geraint, her face bright with happiness.
