At last she calls to mind where hangs a piece (1367)

Of skilful painting, made for Priam's Troy; (1368)

Before the which is drawn the power of Greece, (1369)

Threatening cloud-kissing Ilion with annoy;
Which the conceited painter drew so proud, (1372)

As heaven, it seem'd, to kiss the turrets bow'd.
