HER tale was told, the other's listening done,
And both birds slept. After a little while
There came a frosted neighbour, breaking sleep:
'Up, for the night is gone, and home from hunting
Night thieves return; the morning lamps are lit.
Now sing the drawers of water about the well,
And loaded wagon grates on axle-tree
Waking the road-side dweller; herded slaves
Sweat in the smithies, vext with deafening din.
