    This cordial julep here,
That flames and dances in his crystal bounds.
          Comus. Line 672.
2725

    And live like Nature’s bastards, not her sons.
          Comus. Line 727.

    It is for homely features to keep home,—
They had their name thence; coarse complexions
And cheeks of sorry grain will serve to ply
The sampler and to tease the huswife’s wool.
What need a vermeil-tinctur’d lip for that,
Love-darting eyes, or tresses like the morn?
          Comus. Line 748.
2728
    Swinish gluttony
Ne’er looks to heav’n amidst his gorgeous feast,
But with besotted base ingratitude
Crams, and blasphemes his feeder.

That hath so well been taught her dazzling fence.
          Comus. Line 790.

And backward mutters of dissevering power.
          Comus. Line 816.
2731
    Sabrina fair,
  Listen where thou art sitting
Under the glassy, cool, translucent wave,
  In twisted braids of lilies knitting
The loose train of thy amber-dropping hair.
          Comus. Line 859.
2732
    But now my task is smoothly done,
I can fly, or I can run.
          Comus. Line 1012.
2733
    Or if Virtue feeble were,
Heav’n itself would stoop to her.
          Comus. Line 1022.
2734
    I come to pluck your berries harsh and crude,
And with forc’d fingers rude
Shatter your leaves before the mellowing year.
          Lycidas. Line 3.
2735
    He knew
Himself to sing, and build the lofty rhyme.
          Lycidas. Line 10.
