'The crow may bathe his coal-black wings in mire, (1010)
And unperceived fly with the filth away; (1011)
But if the like the snow-white swan desire, (1012)
The stain upon his silver down will stay. (1013)
Poor grooms are sightless night, kings glorious day:
Gnats are unnoted wheresoe'er they fly, (1015)
But eagles gazed upon with every eye.
