            20    His hospitable board: they are aware
            30    This painted Jove, and taught his novice hand
            45    Oped his young eye to bear the blaze of greatness;
            95    Knows his soft ear the trumpet's thrilling voice,
            96    And outcry of the battle? Have his limbs
