. . . He shakes aloft his Roman blade,/ Which, like a falcon towering in the skies,/ Coucheth the fowl below with his wings' shade,/ Whose crooked beak threats if he mount he dies:/ So under his insulting falchion lies/ Harmless Lucretia, marking what he tells/ With trembling fear, as fowl hear falcon's bells." Shakespeare's Rape of Lucrece. [P. 7; ellipses appear in the catalogue.]
