A storm-cloud lurid with lightning,
And a cry of lamentation,
Repeated and again repeated,
Deep and loud
As the reverberation
Of cloud answering unto cloud,
Swells and rolls away in the distance,
As if the sheeted
Baffled and thwarted by the wind's resistance.

Is often useful, always entertains;

May furnish illustration, well applied;

To hear them tell of parentage and birth,
And echo conversations dull and dry,
Embellish'd with, - He said, - and, So said I.

Lies in his hamstring, and doth think it rich
To hear the wooden dialogue and sound
'Twixt his stretched footing and the scaffoldage.
