"And on the margin of the fount was laid/ . . . a sleeping maid./ Her comely limbs composed with decent care,/ Her body shaded by a slight cymar./ . . . The fool of nature stood with stupid eyes/ And gaping mouth that testified surprise,/ Fixed on her face, nor could he remove his sight/ New as he was to love, and novice to delight/ . . . So reason to his brutal soul began,/ Love made him first suspect he was a man."--Dryden's Cymon and Iphigenia. [P. 16; ellipses appear in the catalogue.]
