George Chapman’s Unicorn

Filed Under: Blog, Unicorn Studies

I once did see
In my young travels through Armenia,
An angrie Unicorne in his full carier
Charge with too swift a foot a Jeweller,
Who sought him for the Treasure of his browe;
And ere he could get shelter of a tree,
Naile him with his rich Antler to the Earth.

Chapman, G. Bussy D’Ambois
