Only Yesterday....

Grim has a tagline for the paragraph he highlights:

It was an impressive speech.


"Upon the corner of the moon
There hangs a vap'rous drop profound;
I'll catch it 'ere it comes to ground;
And that, distilled by magic slights,
Shall raise such artificial sprites,
As, by the strength of their illusion,
Shall draw him on to his confusion."

--Williams, quoting Richard Lovelace' poetry.
