Attorneys-general, awful to the sight,
As hinting more (unless our judgments warp us)
They turn'd to rest; and, each clasp'd by an arm,
Yielded to the deep twilight's purple charm.
Man's pity for himself, or for his son,
Always premising that said son at college
Of coursers also spake they: Henry rid
Well, like most Englishmen, and loved the races;
It is the cry of a thousand sentinels, the echo from a thousand labyrinths; it is the lighthouse which cannot be hidden.
