...called it by a name; 
Weareth at whiles for an enchanter's robe

And hath an ounce sleeker than youngling mole, 
A four-legged serpent he makes cower and couch, 
Now snarl, now hold its breath and mind his eye, 
And saith she is Miranda and my wife: 
'Keeps for his Ariel a tall pouch-bill crane 
He bids go wade for fish and straight disgorge; 
Also a sea-beast, lumpish, which he snared, 
Blinded the eyes of, and brought somewhat tame,

by Keats, John
Yea, every one attend! for in good truth
Our vows are wanting to our great god Pan.

...d swoops 
The vulture, beak and talon, at the heart 
Made for all noble motion: and I saw 
That equal baseness lived in sleeker times 
With smoother men: the old leaven leavened all: 
Millions of throats would bawl for civil rights, 
No woman named: therefore I set my face 
Against all men, and lived but for mine own. 
Far off from men I built a fold for them: 
I stored it full of rich memorial: 
I fenced it round with gallant institutes, 
And biting laws to scare the bea...Read More
