To Annie, till the morrow, when he spoke. 

Then first since Enoch's golden ring had girt

But manifold entreaties, many a tear,
Many a sad kiss by day and night renew'd

Of learning. We could understand, 
But none of us could lift a hand.

Glanced at the legendary Amazon 
As emblematic of a nobler age; 
Appraised the Lycian custom, spoke of those 
That lay at wine with Lar and Lucumo; 
Ran down the Persian, Grecian, Roman lines 
Of empire, and the woman's state in each, 
How far from just; till warming with her theme 
She fulmined out her scorn of laws Salique

With much contempt, and came to chivalry:
