6167 Thomas Babington

AUTHOR:Thomas Babington, Lord Macaulay (1800–1859)
QUOTATION:Oh! wherefore come ye forth in triumph from the north,
  With your hands and your feet and your raiment all red?
And wherefore doth your rout send forth a joyous shout?
  And whence be the grapes of the wine-press which ye tread?
ATTRIBUTION:The Battle of Naseby.
