About him were a press of gaping faces, (1409)
Which seem'd to swallow up his sound advice; (1410)
All jointly listening, but with several graces, (1411)
As if some mermaid did their ears entice, (1412)
Some high, some low, the painter was so nice;
The scalps of many, almost hid behind, (1414)
To jump up higher seem'd, to mock the mind.
