Cambuscan; or, The Squire's Tale - Part 65

In man's imperial race th' effect's the same,
Whatever cause the like distinction breeds;
Whether from mutual passion springs the flame,
Or minds congenial stamp the vital seeds:
Else on extended Guinea's torrid coast,
Where the broad mouth and nose deprest prevail,
In those who regal blood and lineage boast
Why do the gen'ral features rarely fail?
Why shows the Austrian lip the Austrian line?
And in some semblant mark the hero loves to shine.
