Cambuscan; or, The Squire's Tale - Part 64

Hard to describe, whence spring this air assign'd,
In man and brute, to excellence of race;
This outward mark of a superior mind,
That seems to claim precedency of place;
But that experience shows, by constant course,
The noblest animals their like create;
From the selected sire, the generous horse
Derives his fire, and springs from earth elate;
Hears the glad trumpet calling from afar,
And rapid pours his flight amidst the rage of war.
