What Being in Rank-Old Nature

What Being in Rank-Old Nature

What being in rank-old nature should earlier have that breath been
That hйre pйrsonal tells off these heart-song powerful peals?-
A bush-browed, beetle-brуwed bнllow is it?
With a soъth-wйsterly wнnd blъstering, with a tide rolls reels
Of crumbling, fore-foundering, thundering all-surfy seas in; seen
Ъnderneath, their glassy barrel, of a fairy green.
. . . . . . . .
Or a jaunting vaunting vaulting assaulting trumpet telling
