    At length her grace rose and with modest paces
    Came to the altar, where she kneeled, and saint-like
    Cast her fair eyes to heaven and prayed devoutly;
    Then rose again and bowed her to the people;
    When by the Archbishop of Canterbury
    She had all the royal makings of a queen,
    As holy oil, Edward Confessor's crown,
    The rod, and bird of peace, and all such emblems
    Laid nobly on her; which performed, the choir
    With all the choicest music of the kingdom
    Together sung 'Te Deum.' So she parted
    And with the same full state packed back again
    To York Place, where the feast is held.

O, how wretched
Is that poor man that hangs on princes' favors!
There is betwixt that smile we would aspire to,
That sweet aspect of princes, and their ruin,
More pangs and fears than wars or women have;
And when he falls, he falls like Lucifer,
Never to hope again.

His fair large front and eye sublime declared
Absolute rule; and hyacinthine locks
Round from his parted forelock manly hung
Clustering but not beneath his shoulders broad.
