by Thomas Flatman (1637 - 1688)

Not with an Helmet or a glitt'ring Spear
Language: English 
Not with an Helmet or a glitt'ring Spear
Does he appear;
He boasts no Trophies of a cruel Conqueror,
Brought back in triumph from a bloody War,
But with an Olive branch adorn'd
As once the long expected Dove return'd.
