 Of rein and of scabbard of wild Kuzzilbash, 
 What lack you for changing your sob— 
 If not unto laughter beseeming a child— 
 To utterance milder, though they have defiled 
 The graves which they shrank not to rob? 
 "Would'st thou a trinket, a flower, or scarf, 
 Would'st thou have silver? I'm ready with half 
 These sequins a-shine in the sun! 
 Still more have I money—if you'll but speak!" 
 He spoke: and furious the cry of the Greek,
