References to Cannons

Behold the ordnance on their carriages,

With fatal mouths gaping on girded Harfleur.

Suppose the ambassador from the French comes back;

Tells Harry that the king doth offer him

Katharine his daughter, and with her, to dowry,

Some petty and unprofitable dukedoms.

The offer likes not: and the nimble gunner

With linstock now the devilish cannon touches - Prologue

Yea, strike the Dauphin blind to look on us.

And tell the pleasant prince this mock of his

Hath turn'd his balls to gun-stones; and his soul

Shall stand sore charged for the wasteful vengeance

That shall fly with them: 1.2

References to Hunting and Hawking

Assume the port of Mars; and at his heels, Leash'd in like hounds, should famine, sword and fire Crouch for employment. - Prologue

I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,

Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:

Follow your spirit, and upon this charge

Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!' 3.1

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: 3.7

King of France. You see this chase is hotly follow'd, friends.

Lewis the Dauphin. Turn head, and stop pursuit; for coward dogs Most spend their mouths when what they seem to threaten Runs far before them. 2.4
