And, from afar, he scenteth the battle, - the thunder of commanders and the war-cry. Is it, by thine understanding, that the Bird of Passage betaketh him to his pinions? spreadeth out his wings to the south?

Lay thou upon him thy hand, remember the battle - no more! Lo! any hope of him, hath been found deceptive, Even at the sight of him, shall not one be overwhelmed?
