[blocks in formation]

On the tip of his subduing tongue
All kind of arguments and question deep,
All replication prompt, and reason strong,
For his advantage still did wake and sleep :
To make the weeper laugh, the laugher weep,
He had the dialect and different skill,
Catching all passions in his craft of will ;
That he did in the general bosom reign

Of young, of old; and sexes both enchanted.
The very age and body of the time, his form and pressure.
