'Faith, 'tis fair, this speech which fills your tongue with such as might be 
spread forth on a table, or in a menagerie.  'Tis thus I note the feather in 
your cap, and tip mine to you, as one bird to another, a swan trumpetting your 
grace and skill in arts rhetoric, winging my way past your silken phrases in 
an afternoon's musings.  That is to say, wending a terpsichorean path in the 
short notes which you put forth, and which tho' short are just as sweet as 
those of greater length.  To wit, such intonations as you bestow are as rare 
blossoms springing forth from this well-tended ground that is our Merry rose.  
Meet we anon indeed at some good time and soon to parlay our wit, and clasp 
hands in good friendship!
