    And without sneering teach the rest to sneer;
    Willing to wound, and yet afraid to strike,

    A tim'rous foe, and a suspicious friend.

And on her lover's arm she leant,
And round her waist she felt it fold,
And far read more

And on her lover's arm she leant,
And round her waist she felt it fold,
And far across the hills they went,
In that new world that is the old.
