" The subjoined continuitys announce that penny attachment is in-reality an "ever-fix'd mark" which gain survive any emergency. In continuitys 7-8, the bard claims that we may be cogent to appraise attachment to some mark, but this does not balance we easily apprehend it.

There is rush to notice encircling the versified save the glad blending of known and secretive vowels, and of liquids, nasals, and stops; rush to say encircling the comparison save to subject-matter out how the fluttering expression in the quatrains bestow attribute in the couplet to the strong bait of the almost unrelieved iambic feet. In blunt, the bard has populated one hundred and ten of the simplest say in the articulation and the two simplest rhyme-schemes to yield a anthem which has encircling it no unfamiliarity whatforever save the unfamiliarity of ripeion.
