  • You shall have gold To pay the petty debt twenty times over: When it is paid, bring your true friend along.  (not reviewed by editor)

  • Your mind is tossing on the ocean; There where your argosies, with portly sail— Like signiors and rich burghers on the flood, Or as it were the pageants of the sea— Do overpeer the petty traffickers, That curtsy to them, do them reverence, As they fly by them with their woven wings.  (not reviewed by editor)
