by Smart, Christopher
For the word of God is a sword on my side -- no matter what other weapon a stick or a straw.

...ds, placed for the chain's and fleet's defence,
Long since were fled on many a feigned pretence.
Daniel had there adventured, man of might,
Sweet Painter, draw his picture while I write.

Large limbs like ox, not to be killed but shown.
Scarce can burnt ivory feign an hair so black,
Or face so red, thine ocher and thy lac.

Death in my hands, but Gold!
Clive kissed me on the mouth and eyes and brow,
Wonderful kisses, so that I became

Brooding on ancient fame.

Little care I, but hear th...Read More
