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,

Yea, every one attend! for in good truth

...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:
