228
Prayings and callings "Father" -- naught they made
Of these, and of the virgin-age, --
Captains heart-set on war to wage!
His ministrants, vows done, the father bade --
Kid-like, above the altar, swathed in pall,
Take her -- lift high, and have no fear at all,
Head-downward, and the fair mouth's guard
And frontage hold, -- press hard
From utterance a curse against the House
