A knight lies on the ground, still with dagger in his hand. His hounds stay guard as loyal friends with his hawks flying above and one sitting on the tree nearby, also keeping watch. The verse is from ''The Three Ravens'', an old English ballad which predates 1611, when it appeared in Thomas Ravenscroft's ''Melismata. Musicall Phansies. Fitting the Court, Citie, and Countrey Humours'', a collection of folk songs.
