    Close, but untouching in each other’s sight;

    These bright virgins, robed and bare of bonnet,

    Flowing with music of their strange quick tongue
    And adventuring with delicate paces by the stream,—

    That got the Captain finally on his back
    And took the red red vitals of his heart
    And made the kites to whet their beaks clack clack.
