No forfeiture, and of its fruits he sends
Large prelibation oft to faints below:
Of these the firft in order, and the pledge
And confident assurance of the reft,
Is liberty. A flight into his arms
Ere yet mortality's fine threads give way,
A clear escape from tyrannizing luft,
And full immunity from penal woe.
